This study evaluates the scope and degree to which the environment has
been integrated in select EC funded Country Strategies, identifies
environment-poverty weaknesses, and articulates opportunities to address
the environment-poverty concerns. Two Country Strategies have been
evaluated: Tanzania and Madagascar. These countries were selected due to
their significant dependence on natural resources, representative EC
core areas and WWF focal ecoregions, availability of CSP, and synergies
with other programs (e.g., PRSP). For each Country Strategy three core
areas were evaluated: for Tanzania environment-poverty concerns of EC
financing in the transport, macro support, and good governance core
areas were assessed, while for Madagascar environment-poverty weaknesses
in rural development, transport, and macro support were evaluated.
The paper comprises introduction, background, objectives, and
methodology, then chapters including: review of the Tanzania and
Madagascar CSPs, environment-poverty integration in the Tanzania and
Madagascar CPSs, environment-poverty weaknesses in the Tanzania and
Madagascar CSPs, case studies/description of environment-poverty
weaknesses, response strategies: addressing the environment-poverty
concerns of the Tanzania and Madagascar CSPs, concluding remarks, and
