Is the development objective correctly specified? Questions to Guide Mainstreaming, continued:  Questions to Guide Mainstreaming, continued Are opportunities to advance environmental sustainability through policy reforms or development investments identified? What investment is planned to create the policy and governance conditions necessary to ensure environmental sustainability? Questions to Guide Mainstreaming, continued:  Questions to Guide Mainstreaming, continued Are the right geographic and time horizons considered in the assessment of environment and development benefits? How has early consultation with stakeholders—including constituencies for poverty reduction and the environment—affected the design of the policy or project intervention? Modernization of the State: Why Mainstream the Environment?:  Modernization of the State: Why Mainstream the Environment? Opportunities to go beyond 'automatic' synergies Environment a proven entry point for strengthening democracy Institutional and regulatory reforms have environmental implications Modernization of the State: Guiding Principles:  Modernization of the State: Guiding Principles Invest in improved environmental governance Build environmental components into institutional strengthening Anticipate unintended negative consequences of reform Modernization of the State: Examples of Mainstreaming:  Modernization of the State: Examples of Mainstreaming Support assessments of citizen access to environmental information and decisions Add environmental modules to training for judges and prosecutors Consider the environment upstream in sectoral reforms Ensure decentralization is accompanied by environmental accountability and capacity Social Development: Why Mainstream the Environment? :  Social Development: Why Mainstream the Environment?

Competitiveness: Guiding Principles:  Competitiveness: Guiding Principles Evaluate competitiveness at sufficiently broad geographic and time scales to capture environmental and social considerations Internalize environmental costs and benefits of private sector development activities Integrate environmental analysis into competitiveness planning and policies Competitiveness:Examples of Mainstreaming:  Competitiveness: Examples of Mainstreaming Protect key environmental services on which important regional industries depend mangroves for fisheries, soils for agriculture, natural habitats for tourism Levy surcharges on industry sectors with significant health and safety risks Build capacity of finance, commerce and trade ministries for environmental analysis Slide18:  Ensure that trade liberalization serves development objectives Prevents the environmental costs of integration from falling disproportionately on the poor Improvement in the environmental and social quality of infrastructure contributes directly to quality of life Regional Integration: Why Mainstream the Environment?
