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
