The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) establishes the Nation's environmental policy and creates a set of procedures necessary to fulfill that policy. The Agency for International Development (A.I.D.) narrowly interprets the application of NEPA's procedures and has adopted a less rigorous set of environmental evaluation procedures. This Comment examines A.I.D.'s procedures, notes their deficiencies, and suggests that Congress should amend NEPA to require A.I.D. and all agencies to utilize NEPA procedures.
