Philippine Poverty-Environment Initiative

Working Towards Building a Green Economy and Sustainable Local Communities

PPEI is a five-year (2011-2015) collaborative program of the Government of the Philippines and United Nations Development Programme-United Nations Environment Programme (UNDP-UNEP), through the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG). The PPEI supports poverty reduction and inclusive development by integrating pro-poor and environmental concerns into development planning and economic decision-making. It seeks to strengthen local development planning in the use of natural resources and the revenues derived from them, complimented by the growing corporate social responsibility (CSR) and active civil society.
