Poverty Environment Net
Poverty Environment Net focuses on capturing and sharing knowledge about poverty-environment linkages and good practices for addressing the environmental dimensions of poverty. The website was established through the Poverty Environment Program of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and contains links to documents, project descriptions and other resources from round the world. The site also links to the sites of the Poverty Environment Partnership and the UNDP-UNEP Poverty -Environment Initiative. In HOORC's Library, you can find Escaping poverty's grasp : the environmental foundations of poverty reduction by David Reed, and the Columbia University Earth Institute 's poverty mapping work, Where the poor are : an atlas of poverty.
