China - Hubei Hydroelectric Project - resettlement action plan (Vol. 5) : Resettlement policy frame (English)

This resettlement action plan (RAP), prepared in accordance with Chinese laws and regulations, ensures that project affected persons (PAPs) will benefit from the implementation of the Hubei Hydropower Development Project, and, that their living standards will improve, or at least be restored. To achieve these objectives, the RAP provides measures so that the income earning potential of PAPs is restored to sustain their livelihoods. The plan covers restoration for the areas where dam/reservoir, and sub-stations will be constructed, in Xuan-en, Laifeng, Zhushan, and Nanzhang counties, and provides for the following: 1) PAPs will be exempt of paying agricultural production, special products, and grain quota taxes for the first three years following loss of land; 2) the Land Administrative Department will exempt relevant taxes on land, when new houses are built, and provide quick assistance for resettlement; 3) compensations will take the form of land compensation, compensation for standing crops, compensation for farming facilities, agricultural production, and animal husbandry, including provision of technical training on the application of new technologies; and, 4) housing compensation will be based on replacement value without depreciation. Supportive assistance for productive livelihoods will be provided for a period of five years.
