File Enhancing resilience in the Horn of Africa: Synthesis of an evidence based workshop by Portal Web Editor — last modified Mar 01, 2013 07:50 PM

File USAID: ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE PROCEDURES Title 22, Code of Federal Regulations Part 216 by webadmin — last modified Jan 10, 2013 09:47 AM
Foreword This brochure provides a handy copy of the environmental impact assessment procedures used by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). They have been promulgated as Title 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 216 (22 CFR 216). The procedures are used on every program, project, activity and amendment USAID funds to ensure the wise use of American taxpayer money through thoughtful, environmentally sound economic development. In the thirty years in which USAID has been applying these procedures and their predecessors, we have learned that they are most successful when everyone involved in a USAID-funded effort accepts responsibility for understanding and implementing them. Through this process, together we: • Create modern, state-of-the-art development • Achieve optimal economic results with every dollar invested • Avoid harming people in both our partner countries and the U.S. • Avert unintended negative economic growth • Reinforce practical civil society and democracy through transparency and public participation • Reduce diplomatic incidents • Engender public trust and confidence in USAID • Comply with the law. Prepared in 2005. An electronic copy of 22 CFR 216, along with many helpful guidelines, training books, sample documents and contacts of USAID professionals who can assist can be found on the internet at: http://www.usaid.gov/our_work/environment/compliance/index.html

File Social and Biodiversity Impact Assessment (SBIA) Manual for REDD+ Projects: Part 1 Version 2 – Core Guidance for Project Proponents by Portal Web Editor — last modified Feb 20, 2013 01:03 AM
The Climate, Community & Biodiversity (CCB) Standards, used to assess multiple benefits of the majority of forest carbon projects, provide robust standards; however, until now there has been limited guidance on how to undertake credible and cost-effective impact assessment. Forest Trends, the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA), Fauna & Flora International (FFI) and Rainforest Alliance have developed a user-friendly manual that enables land-based carbon project proponents to undertake cost-effective social and biodiversity impact assessment (SBIA). The SBIA Manual is oriented to the CCB Standards, but the approach described is applicable to other multiple benefit carbon standards, as well as to other types of payments for ecosystem services (PES) projects. This is version 2 of the Manual, released in October and launched via a webinar on November 22. There are three (3) parts to the manual 1-Core Guidance for Project Proponents (also available in both French and Spanish), 2-Social Impact Assessment Toolbox (also available in Spanish), and 3-Biodiversity Impact Assessment Toolbox). See Related Items for French and Spanish versions.

This primer forms part of the activities implemented within the Global Strategy for the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment Follow-Up, and offers a starting point from which to assess the potential for PES in specific communities around the world. It also provides pointers for designing and planning PES transactions. Community-benefit driven, or “pro-poor” PES, is the main focus of this work. Specifically, this primer describes: The opportunities and risks of PES schemes for rural community residents in order to enable accurate feasibility assessments for applying these new market-based mechanisms, steps to developing PES projects, and resources for additional reference and reading.
