Smallholder Commercialization and Agribusiness Development Project (SCADeP): Environmental Assessment - Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF)Western Area and 12 Districts in Sierra Leone.  

INTEGEMS was contracted by West Africa Agricultural Productivity Program (WAAPP) - Sierra Leone/Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food Security (MAFFS) to undertake the World Bank's  Smallholder Commercialisation Agribusiness Development Project (SCADeP): Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF). The main development objective of the SCADEP for Sierra Leone was to put modalities in place and initiate the development of a detailed locale-specific environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) focusing on the key activities at the commodity levels involving farmers, agribusinesses and other value-chain actors. INTEGEMS prepared an ESMF that identified the potential impacts and proposed mitigation measures and policy guidelines that will be used as a decision-making tool to ensure that all the sub-projects selected and implemented under the SCADP are environmentally and socially responsive and sound.
