Thorough planning and management mitigates negative environmental impacts that can undermine project goals. We ensure our projects comply with both USAID and local environmental regulations, while acknowledging best practice and standards at international levels. We employ environmental assessments, monitoring and mitigation plans, and responsible pesticide use plans to identify potential impacts and apply appropriate measures to mitigate or eliminate negative impacts to enhance project performance.
