Publication: Implementation Guidelines for Poverty and Environment Work in Southwest China : Guidelines for Poverty Reduction Staff Including Checklists for Managers and Staff
These guidelines have three sections. Section one provides food for thought, regarding poverty and environment, and how the two are linked. Section two provides practical tools to incorporate the environment into a village-level action plan for the environment. Section three provides ideas for innovative activities relating to the environment in poverty reduction programs. Finally two practical checklists are provided: one for poverty reduction managers who wish to monitor progress in incorporating environment into staff work; and one for poverty reduction staff involved into village poverty reduction plans. The guidelines focus on Southwest China where poor areas are mostly mountainous areas. In other parts of China where poor areas are also arid areas, poverty reduction staff may use these guidelines as a reference but will need to adjust specific contents in section 2 to the different environmental issues of the region they work in.
