Poverty and the environment are closely linked and have direct and inclusive relationship with each other in developing countries. The poor are strongly dependent on natural resources for their livelihoods and are particularly vulnerable to environmental stress and disasters. Likewise, development and environmental protection are interdependent and indivisible. Developmental initiatives are required to address poverty of developing countries.
eRG Nepal prudently believes that sound and equitable environmental management is a prerequisite for sustainable development and for effective and sustained poverty reduction. To achieve the goal of sustainable development, sound environmental management shall constitute as an integral part of the development process.
There is also need to see that environment and development is interdependent and interrelated, and need to go beyond the notion of the environment as a restriction on development.
