The UNDP-UNEP Poverty Environment Initiative has released a new report entitled “Mainstreaming Environment and Climate for Poverty Reduction and Sustainable Development: A Handbook to Strengthen Planning and Budgeting Processes.”
About The Book
This handbook is designed as guidance for policymakers and practitioners to mainstream pro-poor environment and climate concerns into planning, budgeting and monitoring. Mainstreaming is achieved by putting poverty-environment issues at the heart of government—in other words, by taking these issues into mainstream economic decision-making processes, particularly the national and sub national planning and budgeting processes led by ministries of finance, planning and local government, and supported by ministries of environment.
