In the last decades, Thailand has achieved remarkable economic growth, but this has brought undesirable social and environmental impacts. Rising per capita consumption, industrialization and the intensification of agriculture has placed enormous strain on the natural resources base. The impact of this environmental degradation has particularly affected poor women and men, who rely more on the natural environment for sustenance, livelihood and general wellbeing.

The Poverty-Environment Initiative focuses on reducing poverty and increasing well-being of poor and vulnerable groups by supporting greener and more inclusive development plans and budgets.Led by the Ministry of Interior, PEI Thailand works in close partnership with other partners including the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and the National Economic and Social Development Board.

Currently, Projects are underway in three Pilot Provinces, namely, Samut Songkram, Nan and Khon Kaen.
