Mainstreaming environmental sustainability in country analysis and the UNDAF - A guidance Note for UNCT and IPT (UNDG - 2009)

Mainstreaming environmental sustainability in country analysis and the UNDAF - A guidance Note for UNCT and IPT (UNDG - 2009)

Mainstreaming environmental sustainability will always be country-specific, depending on the challenges facing each country, and the capacities of partners and the UNCT. Successful mainstreaming will be based on continuous engagement and partnership. This guidance note will enable UNCTs to pick the right moments, and the right mix of actions and tools, to make it work.

Environmental sustainability is 1 of 5 inter-related principles for UN development cooperation1. The rationale for this is strong, with growing evidence about the unsustainable use of the world’s environment and natural resources. Failure to act at country level will inflict irreversible damage on the ecosystems that support human livelihoods and well-being. But a more compelling point is the potential contribution of stronger environmental policy and management for the achievement of national development goals and the MDGs.

Environmental sustainability is about meeting human needs without undermining the capacity of the planet’s ability to support life. However, there is no common guidance about what it means at an operational level. In a survey about the usefulness of the guidelines for the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF)2, over half of UNCTs felt they were not sufficient to better mainstream environmental issues. This guidance note will help. It outlines 15 entry points and related actions and tools that will enable UNCTs and country partners to better mainstream environmental opportunities and concerns during efforts to strengthen country analysis and prepare and implement the UNDAF.
