UN Environment and the UN Development Programme have joined forces to develop guidelines for measuring complex interrelationships between poverty mitigation and environmental protection.

They recently published a working paper, prepared by IDEEA Group’s Mark Eigenraam, on the Poverty Environment Accounting Framework, which adapts the SEEA to provide local policy makers, NGOs and international agencies with a powerful tool to understand, assess and plan integrated regional policies and practices for realising Sustainable Development Goals.
