Niger Community Action Program Phase 3 (Vol. 3) : Plan de gestion des pestes et pesticides du PAC3 : rapport final (French)

The third phase of the Community Actions Program (CAP3) takes place within the context of the decentralization process initiated during the previous phases, in order to strengthen and extend it geographically, while taking into account on-going political, institutional, social and economical changes. Through its three components and their sub-components, the proposed program aims at: (i) Strengthening the leadership of local governments in local development (through cross-cutting initiatives intended to improve governance and build the capacities of all local stakeholders; (ii) Promoting the adoption and use of sustainable natural resource management practices and techniques and combining them with general measures that would create jobs improve local livelihoods; (iii) Speeding up a long-term process of national ownership by national institutions. Negative impacts could include: the construction of infrastructure (buildings) will cause pollution and nuisances (noise, dust) during the construction phase (short term); garbage, can jeopardize the health and welfare of the populations; stagnant water can promote the proliferation of vectors waterborne diseases; waste infrastructure such as sanitary landfills are potential sources of infection and so diseases; in areas of high population density like that of Dallols of Korama and Goulbi, where the water table is fairly superficial, latrines can contaminate them; transport infrastructure (roads, rural roads) will interfere with the drainage and pollute the waters during the construction phase; water resources may be impacted; water can be polluted by pesticides. To reduce the potential negative impacts identified in the environmental assessment a mitigation plan is defined. Mitigation measures will include: consult population to agree on the location of the new road to be built; financial or land compensation for the people whose land is confiscated to build a new road; pay special attention to drainage and to protection of the environment during the road construction; plant new trees; train farmers on new agricultural techniques ; pay specific attention to waste management.
