Malawi's Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, with the support of the UNDP-UNEP Poverty Environment Initiative (PEI), commissioned a study in 2015 to quantify the linkages between poverty and environment and to identify policy options to reduce poverty through sustainable Environment and Natural Resource (ENR) management. This policy brief draws on the findings from the report and makes an economic case for investing in ENRs to reduce poverty within the context of what is generally known as the ‘poverty-environment nexus.’
