Environmental Mitigation and Monitoring Plans (EMMPs) are required for USAID-funded projects when the 22 CFR 216 documentation governing the project (e.g., the Initial Environmental Examination (IEE)) imposes mitigation measures on at least one project or activity. EMMPs ensure that the ADS 204.3 requirements for incorporating and monitoring appropriate mitigative measures into project or activity design. Responsibility for developing the EMMP lies with USAID, but EMMPs are usually prepared by the Implementing Partner (IP). EMMPs are typically conducted after the IEE is complete, though they may be completed as part of the IEE. EMMPs are a vehicle for translating IEE conditions and mitigation measures into specific, implementable, and verifiable actions.
