Mainstreaming Environment and Climate for Poverty Reduction and Sustainable Development

A Handbook to Strengthen Planning and Budgeting Processes

image of Mainstreaming Environment and Climate for Poverty Reduction and Sustainable Development

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.

Guidance note on promoting gender equality

Environment and gender are cross-cutting issues that need to be addressed jointly to advance environmental sustainability and address existing inequalities. Mainstreaming gender in the ENR sector is important, as men and women have differential opportunities in accessing natural resources and related technology and information. Thus women and men have different skills, experiences and knowledge that can help inform environmental and climate change policies for poverty reduction. Studies have shown that increasing women’s access to and control over natural resources in development planning and budgeting can have a positive impact on sustainability, economic growth and poverty reduction (FAO 2011b).
