Integrated Assessment and Planning

In 2003, with funding from the Norwegian government, UNEP ETB launched an Integrated Assessment and Planning (IAP) initiative. The objective was to assist countries to use integrated assessment and planning as a tool for balancing environmental, social and economic objectives and relating them to poverty reduction and trade enhancement. Nine countries participated in this initiative: Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Indonesia, Kenya, Lebanon, Russia, and Uganda. The country-level implementation was characterized by interministerial cooperation and stakeholder participation. In 2006, the initiative’s results from the nine countries were synthesized and published. Individual countries’ reports are also available.
