World Resources 2005 details the steps necessary to empower the poor to use ecosystems both wisely and for wealth. Using examples and case studies, the report traces a route to greater environmental income. Working at the cutting edge of sustainable development, it lays out the governance changes necessary to give the poor the legal, financial, and management capacity to use nature for wealth creation without depleting their fragile resource base.The report presents a wealth of examples to adopt and replicate, demonstrating how nations can support a bottom-up approach to rural growth that begins naturally with the assets that the poor already possess.


Chapter 3 examines key governance conditions that influence whether nature becomes a source of wealth and prosperity for many, or merely a select few. It focuses on the three governance factors with the most concrete impacts on the poor and their capacity to derive environmental income: resource tenure and property rights; decentralization of resource management; and the rights to participation, information,
and justice.

Drawing primarily on a series of sectoral papers presented at a UNDP-EC workshop on poverty and the environment in January 1999 and on supplemental materials, this paper attempts to provide an integrated framework for looking at poverty-environment interactions across a number of resource regimes. It seeks to identify common analytical elements, to identify principles that have produced win-win outcomes, and to extract some general principles for policy formulation and implementation.

The Environment Policy is grounded in ADB's Poverty Reduction Strategy and the Long-Term Strategic Framework (LTSF) 2001-2015. The Poverty Reduction Strategy recognizes that environmental sustainability is a prerequisite for pro-poor economic growth and efforts to reduce poverty. Environmental sustainability is also one of the three crosscutting themes of the LTSF. The environment policy reinforces and complements the environmental issues and concerns addressed in ADB's sector and crosscutting policies.
