The report outlines lessons learned from various countries delivering on poverty-environment efforts, the evolution of the PEI programmatic approach at the country level, and technical support provided in specific areas, such as the long-term impacts of climate change adaptation and the Green Economy agenda, among others. The report describes the work conducted on climate change, including the development of climate adaptation plans, in Bangladesh, Lao PDR, Nepal, Malawi, and Tanzania is also described.

The annual report highlights some of the achievements made at the country level, inter alia, increased awareness and understanding of poverty-environment issues and capacities for mainstreaming (including cross-cutting issues such as disaster risk reduction); generation of country-specific evidence on the contribution of the environment to pro-poor economic growth and human well-being; environmental sustainability included as priority objective or outcomes in national planning processes; inclusion of poverty-environment indicators into policy documents and monitoring systems; increased budget allocation for poverty-environment measures; and improved integration of poverty-environment linkages into joint UN programming processes at country level.

Disaster risk reduction examples inlude: PEI Malawi is a core part of the UNDP-Malawi MDG Cluster work-programme, along with climate change and disaster risk reduction and will help implement the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF); The UNDP Bratislava Regional Centre has established a cross-practice Poverty and Environment Workspace to facilitate exchange of information among colleagues working in areas such as poverty reduction, environment, gender, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction and water governance.
