Required Environmental Assessments Were Not Carried Out - Title 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 216, “Environmental Procedures.” Section 216.2(d)(1) - Section 216.2(d)(2)

USAID’s environmental procedures are included in Title 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 216, “Environmental Procedures.” Section 216.2(d)(1) states that new land development is part of a class of actions that have been determined generally to have a significant effect on the environment. Therefore, an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement, as appropriate, will be required.

Under Section 216.2(d)(2), however, if the originator of the project believes that the project will not have a significant effect on the environment, than an initial environmental examination will be prepared. If the initial environmental examination determines that the project would have a significant effect, an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement will be prepared.

General Recommendations

  • Complete the environmental assessments required by Title 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 216, “Environmental Procedures.”
  • Provide adequate supervision to reasonably ensure compliance with USAID’s environmental procedures.
