Workshop on USAID Environmental Procedures & Integrating Environmental Considerations into the Implementation of Development Programs

Bagamoyo, Tanzania · Monday 2 June—Friday 6 June 2008

For MEOs, CTOs, Activity Managers, Team Leaders, PDOs

Hosted by USAID/Tanzania
Co-sponsored by USAID/AFR/SD, USAID/EA

USAID/Tanzania, USAID/AFR/SD, and USAID/EA offered a unique opportunity for intensive training in the implementation of USAID’s mandatory environmental compliance procedures and in environmentally sound activity design and implementation. This participatory workshop built practical skills and allowed participants to work with colleagues to examine emerging environmental compliance issues in USAID’s evolving agenda, including those encountered in the implementation of PEPFAR and PMI programs.

This workshop’s design was based on the previous workshop in this series (Cape Coast, Ghana, Sept 2006.) Significant time was allocated to field work and analysis to put “classroom skills” into practice. Presentations on special topics by guest experts featured prominently and are available for download below. Two key focus areas included applying environmental principles and environmental compliance throughout the life of the project and current, complex and emerging issues.

All training and field work took place within the Bagamoyo area and included activities in a diverse set of sectors, including: health facilities, malaria control, education, tourism development, and irrigation schemes.
