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.

Mainstreaming into national monitoring processes

This chapter discusses the value and benefits of integrating poverty-environment objectives into national and subnational monitoring systems, the approach to be considered and examples of successful efforts. The utility of a public finance expenditure review exercise for tracking budgeting and spending is explored. Lastly, the chapter touches on other measurements of natural wealth and well-being which can be used to support the integration and monitoring of poverty-environment objectives.
