Part of an emerging pattern on the part of low-lying or environmentally vulnerable nations, Suriname has recently established a new government bureau known as the Climate Compatible Development Agency.

Despite barely contributing to the disastrous environmental conditions the Earth is currently faced with, Suriname is nonetheless among the major victims of climate change. Along with Maldives, Tuvalu and several other island-nations, the entire country of Suriname may be underwater by the end of the century. With their very existence on the line, the Climate Compatible Development Agency was established recently in order to ensure that development within the country's borders was as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible.

This development appears on the heels of a similar announcement by Suriname's neighbor, Guyana, which hopes to raise worldwide awareness of their unfortunate, undeserved situation. Stats for Eco-Friendly Feds Trending: Older & Chilly
