The Poverty-Environment Initiative (PEI) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is a global UN-led programme that supports country-led efforts to mainstream poverty-environment linkages into national development planning.

The PEI provides financial and technical assistance to government partners to set up institutional and capacity strengthening programmes and carry out activities to address the particular poverty-environment context.

The joint global UNDP-UNEP Poverty-Environment Initiative (PEI) is planning its next phase from 2013-2017 in the following regions: Africa, Asia, Europe & Central Asia, and Latin America.
