A Free Handbook to Strengthen Planning and Budgeting Processes: Mainstreaming Environment and Climate for Poverty Reduction and Sustainable Development

This Handbook is designed as guidance for policymakers and practitioners to mainstream pro-poor environment and climate concerns into planning, budgeting and monitoring. Mainstreaming is achieved by putting poverty-environment issues at the heart of government—in other words, by taking these issues into mainstream economic decision-making processes, particularly the national and subnational planning and budgeting processes led by ministries of finance, planning and local government,and supported by ministries of environment.

The Handbook provides guidance and concrete examples from PEI experience in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States, and Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as from other initiatives.


The handbook provides guidance and tools for policymakers and practitioners to mainstream pro-poor ENR and climate objectives into development policies, plans, budgets and implementation programmes at the national, subnational and sectoral levels.

Target Audience

The target audience for the handbook consists primarily of practitioners at the national, subnational (regional, district, municipal) and sectoral levels, and champions of the mainstreaming process.
