Brazil - Sao Paulo Sustainable Rural Development Project : resettlement policy framework : Marco de reassentamento involuntário (Portuguese)

The development objectives of the Sao Paulo Sustainable Rural Development Project are to help increase the competitiveness of family agriculture in priority areas while improving its environmental sustainability. This would be achieved by assisting small-scale farmers to: 1) increase the productivity of their land and labor, and improve the quality of their products through enhanced production techniques; 2) engage more actively in supply/value chains, where there is a comparative advantage, by undertaking basic processing and marketing techniques and/or strengthening partnerships with larger private operators in these areas; 3) strengthen the organizational and managerial capacity of producers associations, as well as promote the emergence of new associations/cooperatives; and 4) -mainstream improved land and water management practices tested under the previous operations for more competitive production systems. The project would also improve the public physical and institutional infrastructures to the extent needed to support the project development objective. It is highly unlikely that the project would cause physical resettlement or nonphysical displacement. Yet, the project includes financing for the rehabilitation of tertiary rural roads and technical assistance to develop municipal road management plans. Regarding the implementation of any roads maintenance works, the client has issued its preference to do so only where there is the full agreement of all potentially affected parties. Nonetheless, some potential right-of-way issues may arise, so the client has agreed to prepare a Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF).
