Uganda - Second Energy for Rural Transformation Adaptable Program Loan Project : resettlement plan (Vol. 2) : Resettlement action plan for Rubaare-Kakukuru-Kyempene (English)

The objective of the Second Energy for Rural Transformation Adaptable Program Loan Project for is to increase access to energy and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in rural Uganda. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: land in the way leaves is not acquired but since its use is restricted, it is ‘orphaned land’ and valued at a proportion of the market value reflecting this restriction. Plantation crops such as tea in way leaves that are shorter than 1.8 m are allowed beneath the line or in the way leaves and are not compensated. However allowance was made in the valuation exercise for their compensation if damaged during power line construction. Although REA does not completely prohibit human activities within the way leave, it restricts certain uses and heights in there. For example no buildings are allowed and crops therein grown must not exceed 1.8 meters in height; the construction of the power line imposes restrictions on the use of land within the 10 meters way leaves corridor including planting of trees and construction of buildings and structures; wetlands, road reserves and forest reserves were considered to be Government Land. However in areas where economic activities were being carried out by claimants, assessment for compensation of damaged crops and trees was made; where community lands were identified, the crops and trees on the land were assessed and the whole compensation amount will be paid for those assets. Working with local leaders, every effort will be made to identify the PAPs who were cultivating the land at the time of the census. Payments will be made directly to the beneficiary entity; seasonal crops were not considered in the assessments since people would be given time to harvest their crops; and the assessment covered only trees and some perennial crops.
