PEI Annual Progress Report 2016

The theme of last year’s annual report was seeds of change, highlighting the Poverty-Environment Initiative’s role in integration and mainstreaming of poverty eradication and sustainable development. This year, as the international community reflects on the first year of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – noting the priorities and integrated approaches put forth by major global frameworks such as the Paris Agreement under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on financing for development, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+ 20) – we are proud to share details of a rich blossoming of our integrated approach, as it is serving to mainstream the poverty-environment nexus into countries’ national development strategies, local development plans and budget resource allocations as our contribution to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
