The DAC Guidelines Integrating the Rio Conventions into Development Co-operation (Complete Edition - ISBN 926419813X)
These Guidelines highlight the linkages between global environmental issues, on the one hand, and sustainable development and poverty reduction, on the other. They demonstrate how development co-operation agencies can support developing countries' efforts to integrate responses to the environmental threats addressed by the Climate Change, Biodiversity and Desertification Conventions (the "Rio Conventions") into their national poverty reduction and development plans. While focusing on the Rio Conventions, many of the findings outlined in these Guidelines apply equally to other global or regional environmental issues.
The Guidelines are primarily aimed at decision makers and development policy experts in donor organisations.Since development co-operation is a partnership aimed at supporting and building on each party's own efforts, the analysis and recommendations are also relevant for policy makers and planners in partner developing countries.
