Poverty Environment Partnership

The Poverty Environment Partnership (PEP) was established in 2002 as an informal network of donor agencies, multilaterals and some research-focused international NGOs which is attempting to mainstream environment in development aid, in support of national and sector development planning in developing countries (see http://www.povertyenvironment.net/pep/)

The most recent meeting (PEP 14), hosted by UNEP in Geneva (31 March, 1-2 April 2009), included a session on lessons from developing country practice in mainstreaming environment into poverty reduction and economic growth. The following presentations were made:

Poverty Environment Initiative: mainstreaming in Africa (David Smith, PEI Africa)

It was agreed to make environmental mainstreaming a core theme for the next meeting (PEP 15) in early 2010 (venue to be decided).
