Resource rich countries have worse public health and ecosystem vitality than other countries, according to the 2012 Environmental Performance Index (EPI). JM Wright shares the 2012 EPI and how it relates to the EITI.

Less than one month after he sounded an alarm about the narrow survival of 27 miners, George Amoh informs us about 17 artisanal and small scale miners in the same area who were not so lucky.
