Making the economic case: A primer on the economic arguments for mainstreaming poverty-environment linkages into national development planning, 2009
A major element of the PEI country work is to assist in “making the case” for integrating environmental management by using the argument that better environmental management contributes to poverty reduction, pro-poor growth and government finances. This new primer provides guidance on presenting evidence about the economic, development and poverty reduction benefits of the environment to public sector decision-makers, so as to justify and promote “environmental investment”. Hard copies can be ordered through the Poverty Environment Facility.
