Despite the region’s rapid economic growth, resource consumption and carbon emissions in Asia now outstrip the rest of the work. The region is home to 63% of the world’s poor (ADB, 2011) who mostly rely on natural resources for their livelihoods. Unsustainable natural resource management, unequal distribution of natural resources and lack of pro-poor environmental governance have left many in the region vulnerable.
The UNDP-UNEP Poverty-Environment Initiative is a global UN-led programme working in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe and CIS. It supports country led efforts to mainstream pro-poor and gender responsive environment objectives into national and sub-national development, from policy making, planning and budgeting to implementation and monitoring.
In Asia and the Pacific, PEI works in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal and the Philippines. PEI works with Ministries of Finance, Planning, Local Government and Environment to direct public and private investments to achieve inclusive green economies. PEI supports Governments in three broad areas, including analysis and developing evidence for policy reforms, capacity building for institutional change and advocacy and communications to support policy implementation.
The overall outcome of PEI is to “Enhanced implementation of pro-poor environmentally sound development policies, plans and budgets for inclusive and sustainable growth”.
