Abstract

As an input to the development of a corporate Environment Strategy, aligned with its poverty reduction mission, the World Bank contracted the World Resources Institute (WRI) for the preparation of a background paper on spatially referenced indicators of natural resources, which can be used to target poverty reduction programs and monitor their outcomes. This paper builds largely on the geographic information system (GIS)-based "potential risk indicators" developed by WRI for the major categories of ecosystems for which data are available.
