Revisions to Environmental Assessments Delay Agreements - Section 117 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended and as reflected in ADS Chapter 204, Environmental Procedures - ADS 202

Section 117 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended and as reflected in ADS Chapter 204, ?Environmental Procedures,? requires that the impact of USAID’s activities on the environment be considered and that USAID include environmental sustainability as a central consideration in designing and carrying out its development programs in foreign countries. According to ADS 202, program managers are responsible for managing and monitoring the compliance of their activities.

General Recommendations
