The program will also support the country-driven efforts to mainstream poverty-environment linkages into development planning for national, sectoral and district development plans and budgets. The project will result in increasing and enhancing investments that deliver concrete and significant results in poverty reduction, environmental and natural resource sustainability and resilience building at national and district levels.
The PEA Project will provide strategic, financial and technical assistance to government partners to set up institutional and capacity strengthening programmes and carry out activities to improve the sustainability of environment and natural resource use in a manner that contributes to national development goals, including ending poverty, and achieving SDGs.. It will also build capacities for programming, budgeting and action that eliminates poverty and delivers sustainable ENR management at district-level, as well as increasing investments with enhanced impacts for poverty elimination and ENR sustainability catalyzed.
