    Belize is a small country of rich cultural and ecological diversity located on the Eastern shore of the Yucatan peninsula in Central America. The country is a case study in ecological alteration, as the area has faced environmental challenges since early Maya settlement. Today, Belize is balancing economic development and population rise with deforestation, waste disposal, and the effects of ecological tourism. While there is little evidence of environmental degradation caused by either nuclear waste or automobile exhaust, Belize does face the challenges of providing clean drinking water to its citizens and enforcement of environmental legislation.
