    What is India's ranking at the first ever Environment and Gender Index (EGI), launched at a side event of the Conference of Parties (CoP 19), which was held in Warsaw, Poland from November 11 to 23, 2013?

    A)  50                   

    B)  46

    C)  47                   

    D)  49

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    [b] The Environment and Gender Index monitors government progress toward gender equality and women's empowerment in the environmental arena. For the past two decades, governments have established new international mandates ensuring that gender equality and women's empowerment are central to environmental decision-making and sustainable development. However, the lack of a mechanism to monitor and measure government progress has contributed to little or no implementation of these mandates. The EGI provides the first quantitative data 'on governments' performance translating the gender and environment mandates in the three Rio Conventions and CEDAW into national policy and planning. The resulting information will help policymakers, civil society, and others evaluate progress and identify where the gaps lie in achieving gender equality in the environmental context.
