Sustainable Development in Poland and Ukraine with Special Respect to Rural Areas

Henryk Manteuffel Szoege

Abstract

A comparison of Poland and Ukraine on the ground of the Environmental
Sustainability Index calculated by the Centre for Environmental Law and Policy of
Yale University shows a slight advantage of Poland in environmental sustainability.
Ukraine with 44.7 points ranked 108 while Poland with 45.0 points ranked 102
among the 146 classified countries of the world. The state of natural environment in
Ukraine seems to be much better, while Poland has a certain advantage with respect
to the institutional issues in environmental management. Both countries have about
the same impact on global environment, of a predominantly negative nature.
