China - Implementation guidelines for poverty and environment work in southwest China (English)

This report is a summary of research work coordinated by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) China in 2003-2005, to prepare Implementation Guidelines for Poverty and Environment Work (IGPEW) in China. This report describes the research in two provinces, Yunnan and Sichuan, relating to the government's on-going Village-Based Integrated Poverty Reduction Plan for Poorer Western Regions. In addition, an English version of the implementation guidelines for poverty and environment work, and of the checklist, has been prepared by combining the documents produced in the two provinces. The research provides an excellent basis to allow environmental concerns to become a routine element in poverty reduction projects. Capacity at all levels will be built through this process.The report identifies a few points that will require attention, and the provincial team outlines recommendations to facilitate the process.
