The DAC Guidelines: Integrating the Rio Conventions Into Development Co-operation

Front Cover
This publication aims to clarify the links between the Rio Conventions on climate change, biodiversity and desertification, and sustainable development issues. It seeks to provide insights as to how development co-operation agencies can help developing countries respond to global environmental threats and address poverty reduction concerns. It contains the policy statement endorsed at the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) meeting in May 2002; an executive summary and an indepth analysis of key policy issues and priority areas for action; and a number of annexes summarising the main concepts and terms involved. Whilst the guidelines focus on the Rio Conventions, many of the findings apply equally to other global or regional environmental issues.
