This document presents one sector of the Sector Environmental Guidelines (SEGs) prepared for United States Agency for International Development (USAID) under the Agency’s Global Environmental Management Support (GEMS) program. All sectors are accessible at http://www.usaidgems.org/sectorGuidelines.htm. Purpose. The purpose of this document is to support environmentally sound design and management (ESDM) of common USAID sectoral development activities by providing concise, plain-language information regarding: • The typical, potential adverse impacts of activities in these sectors (e.g., mining, agriculture, construction, fisheries, health care), including climate change considerations; • How to prevent or otherwise mitigate these impacts, both in the form of general activity design guidance and specific design, construction, and operating measures; • How to minimize vulnerability of activities to climate change, as well as contributions of activities to climate change; • More resources for further analysis of these issues; and • How to develop environmental compliance applications.
