Audit of USAID Efforts to Protect the Environment

Country: United States
Fiscal Year: 2009
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: No
Description:

Growing populations are placing increasing pressure on the natural resources of many countries, and many of these resources are not renewable. USAID’s activities in natural resource management are closely linked with activities to improve health, increase agricultural productivity, mitigate or adapt to climate change, and even enhance governance—governance of the environment. For FY 2007, USAID reported that it had spent about $334 million on activities related to the environment. USAID has requested $333 million for FY 2009.

In carrying out its activities overseas, USAID is subject to U.S. environmental laws, regulations, Executive orders, and procedures that ensure the wise use of the taxpayers’ money.

The audit will (1) determine whether USAID-financed activities in the environmental sector achieved intended results and (2) assess the activities’ impact.
