Knowledge materials for policy and programme implementation
During the second phase of implementation of a PEI programme, PEI works with countries to translate into action policies, policy interventions and programmes in which environment has been mainstreamed.
PEI collaborates with key sector and local agencies to strengthen implementation measures for poverty-environment, so that for example the agriculture sector adopts sustainable land use-based agricultural practices. PEI works to build long-term capacity to identify and mainstream poverty-environment linkages within the work of sector and local agencies and take account of the value of poverty-environment sector-based strategies and practices, through for example integrated economic-environmental analysis.
