About the DAC ENVIRONET

 

Who are we ?

The Network on Environment and Development Co-operation (ENVIRONET) of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) promotes and facilitates the integration of environment and climate change into all aspects of development co-operation.

ENVIRONET is a network of development co-operation practitioners committed to working together to promote good practice in the fields of environment and development. The Network brings together representatives of development co-operation agencies from DAC member countries and from multilateral agencies including the World Bank and the United Nations Development Programme. Representatives from civil society and developing countries also participate as observers and help to support the Networks’ objectives. ENVIRONET meets once or twice a year.

 

Our mandate

ENVIRONET builds on the knowledge, experience and practice of its members and participants. ENVIRONET supports developing countries’ policies and efforts to promote environmentally-sustainable, resource-efficient livelihoods, and economies that are resilient to climate change. ENVIRONET makes policies and approaches more consistent with the priorities of developing countries and more coherent, transparent and harmonised across donors. It seeks to enhance the impact of DAC policy advice and guidance on environment, green growth and climate change by promoting its dissemination and take-up, including by leveraging the capacities of members and specialised institutions. In all of these activities, the DAC ENVIRONET works in close partnership with other OECD bodies: the Environment Policy Committee (EPOC), the DAC Working Party on Statistics (WP-STAT) and the Development Centre, in line with the OECD Strategy on Development. This strengthens the coherence and impact of our work.
