UNEP - Regional Office for Asia Pacific - Bangladesh
Poverty, environment and climate issues are critical for Bangladesh to meet its commitment toward achieving the Millennium Development Goals. In Bangladesh, the PEI programme aims to reverse environmental degradation and climate change impact in a way that will benefit the poor, particularly women, and to enable growth that is consistent with a better environment. It aims to improve natural resources management and environment outcomes for poor people through mainstreaming pro-poor and gender sensitive environment and climate change issues into the design and implementation of national development processes, budget and economic decision-making.
