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 budgeting processes

This chapter describes approaches to budgeting and financing for poverty-environment mainstreaming, which includes influencing the budgeting process at various levels (e.g. revenue and expenditure) and emphasizing the contribution of ENR to public finances. The chapter also describes how budgets actually work, how poverty-environment mainstreaming has contributed to influencing public budget circulars and the assessment methodologies for selecting public investment programmes in support of pro-poor environmental sustainability.
