Worldwide Audit of USAID’s Efforts To Protect the Environmental Considerations in Its Project Portfolio.
Country: United States
Fiscal Year: 2010
Audit Report Available: Yes
Environmental damage stemming from economic development is a fundamental concern in the developing world. As USAID-funded programs are implemented across the globe, the environmental effects of those programs must be carefully considered and mitigated to the extent possible. The Code of Federal Regulations, “Environmental Procedures” (22 CFR 216), ensures that environmental considerations are integrated into the decision-making process for all USAID funded projects, programs, and activities. Among its provisions, Regulation 216 requires that environmental safeguards be incorporated into program planning and design and directs that programs be continually monitored and modified when necessary to mitigate environmental damage. USAID’s Automated Directives System provides policy and procedures on how to apply 22 CFR 216. Additionally, it is USAID’s policy to assist host countries with strengthening their capability to evaluate potential environmental effects of proposed projects and to develop effective environmental programs.
This audit will determine whether USAID has integrated environmental considerations in its project portfolio.
