The Action Programmes Division was created out of the realization that poverty and the environment are deeply intertwined. In order to mitigate environmental risks, it is imperative to address the issues of poverty-the main stimulator of environmental degradation. The Division takes into account the complexities that emerge when environmental issues are married to a region's unique social and economic profile, and initiates comprehensive solutions for the poor that are sustainable and cost-effective, and enhance the quality of life.

The focus of the Division is thus on delivering a combination of integrated-technology-based solutions as against isolated, sector-specific interventions.
