Kenya - Adaptation to Climate Change in Arid Lands (KAACCAL) Project : environmental assessment : Environmental assessment and management framework (Inglês)

The objective of the KACCAL project is to assist Kenya in adapting to expected changes in climatic conditions that otherwise threaten the sustainability of rural livelihoods in its arid and semi-arid lands. The environmental assessment and management framework (EMF) document has been designed to fully comply with national environmental codes and legislations of Kenya and with the Bank's environmental and social safeguard policies. As part of the EMF process, micro-projects under KACCAL, will be designed at the local level to ensure that they are screened for potential impacts and that they comply with the requirements set out in this EMF. The project is conceived and designed to have significant positive environmental and social impacts. Some micro-projects may have potential risks of site-specific adverse environmental and social impacts in the following areas : ensure that environmental concerns as they relate to the project are carefully assessed and that the appropriate systems and procedures are put in place to mitigate any possible negative environmental impacts. The EMF will help identify any potential impacts on natural habitats or protected areas and proposes mitigation measures. It is likely that the project is not providing support for the purchase or use of pesticides, however, the requirement to screen for pesticide use of herbicides for bush clearance or irrigation systems (rain-fed or irrigated farming) is included in the processes set out in the EMF. The project may induce pressure on forest resources (wood for construction), however, the EMF provides the necessary measures in the screening process to identify impacts on forests and forest resources. Finally, through a highly participatory mechanisms built into the community driven development (CDD) design, the project will raise awareness and empower communities to increase protection of forests and other resources.
