Poverty-environment mainstreaming involves establishing the links between poverty and environment – including climate change – and identifying the policies and programmes to bring about better pro-poor environmental management. It weaves the poverty-environment nexus into national development planning processes and their products, national sustainable growth strategies and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. Poverty-Environment Action captures generic lessons learnt and best practices in concrete guidance, other publications and web-based knowledge sharing platforms that help practitioners access the information they need. The following publications are recommended as references for integration of poverty-environment, climate and gender objectives and the human-rights based approach into planning, budgeting, programming and finance.
