Uruguay - Sustainable Management of Natural Resources and Climate Change Project : environmental assessment : Evaluacion social (Espanhol)

The Sustainable Management of Natural Resources and Climate Change Project's main objective is to promote among farmers and rural people to adopt sustainable integrated production systems in economic, social and environmental, within a context of integrated ecosystem management and natural resources. By incorporating management measures on soil, water, natural pastures, it seeks to improve the productivity of rural establishments integrating biodiversity conservation, tending to reduce the vulnerability of family farmers to climate variability. In parallel, it will improve early warning systems, improving decision-making process and the predictability and risk management to extreme weather. The development objective of the project is to make investments in agriculture and livestock production systems environmentally sustainable and resilient to climate variability while reducing GHG emissions from the sector. The objective would be achieved through developing instruments that would provide critical and timely information, as well as technical and financial assistance, to farmers in order to promote investments in their production systems aimed at reducing risks and making them more resilient to extreme climatic events. As a sector project where funding for specific subprojects will be examined on a case by case basis during implementation, the environmental impact depends on: i) how each sub-project will be evaluated for potential environmental consequences that lead to rejection acceptance, redesign or acceptance subject to mitigation measures, and ii) the likelihood of an institutional structure that could implement the recommendations of the Environmental Assessment. This project is to generate demand from the productive sector investment projects. This may mean that a proposal could create a risk of environmental impact. The project will contribute to the sustainability of the expansion and development of the agricultural sector in the medium and long term upgrading the integrated management of natural resources through improving the environmental quality of farms among other things to improve water use, soil and natural pastures, to increase forest cover with native species, reduce the use of agrochemicals, improved water catchment areas and others such as those mentioned in the preceding paragraphs. Since this is the expected result, it does not qualify as a project that generates a negative environmental impact; quite the contrary, at the environmental level it will have a positive or neutral effect.
