Guidelines on the Integration of Environment and Climate Change in Development Cooperation

These guidelines define a comprehensive reference framework for integrating the environment and climate change into the different stages of the cycle of operations for EC development cooperation covering the three aid delivery approaches. They are intended for EC staff and their partners and replace the Environmental Integration Handbook for EC Development Cooperation (2007 edition). The guidelines are presented in 6 chapters: Chapters 1-2 provide an introduction and the rationale and main concepts along with the policy framework. Chapters 3-6 focus on programming and aid delivery modalities and illustrate the use of the tools, methods and environmental integration entry points. The Annexes contain sector fiches, screening questionnaires and model terms of reference for Country Environmental Profiles and environmental assessments including Environ-mental Impact Assessments and Strategic Environmental Assessments.
