This report identifies key entry points to strengthen (and strategic
gaps that are challenging) environment-poverty integration in the CSP
process. This paper does so by reviewing the CSP process (e.g., how CSPs
are developed and reviewed), evaluating existing procedures to integrate
the environmental dimension in country programming, and assessing if
current guidelines/tools underscore environment-poverty mainstreaming.
This paper provides various long term institutional and policy
recommendations including practical suggestions on: developing useable
guidelines to integrate the environment-poverty dimension in focal areas
of EC development cooperation (trade, support to macro-economic
policies, transport, etc.); integrating poverty environment linkages at
the core of country programming; and developing clear strategic
institutional procedures to improve accountability of environment
mainstreaming in country programming.
This report begins with a background, then chapters including: overview
of paper and methodology, follow-up CSP review, institutional
evaluation, and finally, recommendations/opportunities to improve
