Mainstreaming of environmental issues is not always tangible; most economic development comes at the expense of some natural resource. This study strives to come up with tangible recommendations to the European Community (EC) in Rwanda to mainstream environmental considerations into their support for rural development. Specifically this study examined the planned support of to the Government of Rwanda for the Decentralized Programme for Rural Poverty Reduction (DPRPR), a four-year, 32 million Euro project to give support to decentralized levels of government: cellule, sector and district level, and to the national level.
The report includes introduction, methodology and approaches, results and discussion, Opportunities to Mainstream Poverty-Environment Linkages within the Current Political Framework, and conclusion and discussion.
