Tanzania - Second Additional Financing for Agriculture Sector Development Project : environmental and social management framework (English)

The objectives of the Agriculture Sector Development Project (ASDP) are: (i) sustained 5 percent annual growth of agricultural gross domestic product (GDP) (averaged over a rolling three year period) through improved productivity and profitability of the sector; and (ii) higher farm productivity, profitability and incomes through improved access to and use of relevant agricultural knowledge and technology by farmers; increased district level investment; and improved market development. Negative impacts include: water pollution and water quality, water extraction and water rights, land loss and resettlement, natural habitats, species loss, land degradation, dam safety, and significant construction issues such as spoil disposal management. Mitigation measures include: 1) training of subsistence and cash crop farmers and pastoralists on soil conservation methods; 2) rehabilitate anti-erosion infrastructure such as, micro-basins, micro dams, hill side terracing, soil bunds etc.; 3) introduce crop rotation management use of fertilizers, tree planting and soil drainage; 4) protection of outlet of drainage canals and culverts to avoid gully forming downstream of the canal or culvert; 5) promote potable water and sanitation sub projects; 6) improve management of household and solid waste, including infrastructure for collection and treatment of liquid waste and waste water; 7) reduce biomass use through provision of alternative energy sources and construction materials (cooking stoves photovoltaic's); 8) protect sensitive ecosystems such as forests and wetlands prevent further encroachment in protected areas; and 9) exclude ecosystems that provided and important habitat for protected species.
