This second phase of the Poverty Environment Network (PEN) will continue the dissemination of knowledge products, experiences and tools to policy-makers and practitioners.
Furthermore, this second phase will expand in three specific areas (approximate percentages of KNOWFOR resources in parenthesis), as described below:
1) Climate change effects (50%): Research will examine the likely impacts of climate change on the livelihoods of rural smallholders.
2) Living Standard Measurement Survey (LSMS) national uptake (30%): Project activities will engage national stakeholders in the new forestry module developed for the World Bank’s LSMS in two pilot countries - Indonesia and Tanzania (conducted jointly with the Program on Forests [PROFOR], the World Bank, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Forestry Resource and Institutions research program (IFRI), and the University of Copenhagen).
3) International uptake (20%): PEN results will continue to be disseminated to additional international decision-makers (for example, donor forums, statistical bureau working groups).
