The Poverty-Environment Initiative (PEI) In Nepal
PDF File Size: 2.56 MB | Download   
Natural resources such as forests, agricultural lands, biodiversity and water resources are the livelihood base of almost 90% of Nepal’s population. Altogether, they represent almost 40% of the country’s GDP. While in the last decades considerable progress has been made in poverty reduction, unsustainable use of these natural resources has resulted in wide spread environmental degradation now threatening to undermine development progress. The Poverty Environment Initiative supports central and local governments to integrate environmental, poverty and climate challenges in planning and budgeting processes to achieve a greener, more inclusive and more sustainable development path. The support is already bringing out a positive impact on decisions taken at the local level to promote the development of sustainable rural infra­structure. The two main partners of PEI Nepal are the National Planning Commission and the Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development.
