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 institutional and context analysis

Political processes, informal institutions and power relations all play vital roles in the success or failure of development interventions. A development programme succeeds when key players have an incentive to make it succeed. When a society’s principal actors are threatened by a development programme, they have an incentive to oppose it. Understanding how different actors in society have differing incentives to enable or oppose development interventions is critical to successful programming. Illuminating this mixture of incentives and constraints is the aim of institutional and context analysis at the country level.
