Website on Poverty Environment Nexus is online now

Poverty in Pakistan is an increasing social problem and represents the critical challenge to be addressed by the Government of Pakistan. It has been estimated that about 32% of Pakistan's population are below the food poverty line and about 44% are below the poverty line on the human poverty index (UNDP, 2002). IUCN- Pakistan developed this website to highlight the work and research undertaken in Pakistan on the poverty-environment nexus. The site provides links to various documented works and case studies.
