Bosnia and Herzegovina - Federation Road Sector Modernization Project : resettlement plan : Resettlement review and audit report (English)

The Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) has launched the overarching FBiH Modernization of main roads program to ensure adequate road infrastructure by 2020. In the framework of the mentioned umbrella Program, the Public Company ‘Roads of FBiH’ (PC Roads FBiH), a limited liability company wholly owned by the Government of FBiH, has initiated the FBiH Road Sector Modernization Project (the Project). For this purpose, it has requested the Government of FBiH to ensure credit funds from International Financial Institutions (IFIs). The Government of FBiH has supported the initiative to ensure credit resources from IFIs in the amount of up to €150 million, including €103.38 million from the World Bank (WB) and the European Investment Bank (EIB). Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: In all cases of land acquisition, compensation was paid prior to formal transfer of ownership of expropriated property, in compliance with the Law which stipulates that compensation arrangements must be settled prior to formal transfer of ownership of the expropriated property. A legal condition to start expropriation is the existence of evidence that the required funds have been secured and deposited with the bank in the assessed total sum for payment or proof of existence of replacement properties; and compensation arrangements were based on valuations of official court valuators, and included all auxiliary structures as well as any crops/trees/improvements on land. The requirements of the Law on Expropriation on providing compensation at replacement value for crops and trees (as elaborated under Chapter 4: Legal Framework) are compliant with the WB requirements.
