Uganda - Second Local Government Development Program (LGDP) : resettlement action plan (English)

This Resettlement Policy Framework covers the principles and objectives governing resettlement and compensation preparation and implementation, emphasizing that 1) the resettlement policy applies to all project components, whether or not they are directly funded in whole or in part by the bank; 2) the policy applies to all displaced persons regardless of the total number affected, the severity of the impact, and whether or not they have legal title to the land; and 3) particular attention will be paid to the needs of vulnerable groups among those displaced--especially those below the poverty line, the landless, the elderly, women and children, indigenous groups, and the ethnic minorities or other displaced persons not protected through Uganda land compensation legislation. The report also describes the process for preparing and approving resettlement and compensation plans; those categories of persons who will likely be displaced; the eligibility criteria for defining various categories of project affected persons; a legal framework that reviews the fit between the laws and regulations of Uganda and Bank policy requirements and measures proposed to bridge any gaps between them--with the proviso that the higher of the two standards will be followed in this policy framework; valuation methods for affected land and assets as determined by customary law, freehold law, Mailo law, and leasehold law provisions; organizational procedures to deiver entitlements, responsibilities of the government, and the private developer; a description of the implementation process, linking resettlement implementation to civil works; a description of grievance redress mechanisms; a description of the arrangements for funding resettlement and compensation; and a description of mechanisms for consultations with, and participation of, displaced persons in planning, implementation, and monitoring.
