Title 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 216, “Environmental Procedures,” requires USAID to ensure that the environmental consequences of USAID-financed activities be identified and considered prior to a final decision to proceed, and that appropriate environmental safeguards be adopted.
Title 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 216.2(d), identifies several classes of actions that normally have a significant effect on the environment and therefore require an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement. Among the classes of actions are irrigation and water management projects and leveling of agricultural land.
- Perform an environmental assessment for the program when required and implement any corrective actions that may be required.
