Ethiopia - Urban Local Government Development Project : resettlement plan : Resettlement policy framework (English)

This document provides a Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF) for the Urban Local Government Development Project (ULGDP) for Ethiopia. The project objectives of this Resettlement Policy Framework are to: (i) as far as possible ensure that involuntary resettlement and land acquisition is avoided or where it is necessary, is minimized, by exploring all viable alternatives; (ii) where involuntary resettlement and land acquisition is unavoidable, resettlement and compensation activities are prepared and implemented by providing sufficient investment resources according to GOE Proclamation and Regulations; and (iii) persons displaced by the ULGDP will be meaningfully consulted. The project standard of living adversely affected, whether or not the project affected persons (PAPs) must move to another location; Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) is a resettlement instrument (document) to be prepared when ULGDP investment project locations are identified. In such cases, land acquisition leads to physical displacement of persons, and/or loss of shelter, and /or loss of livelihoods and/or loss, denial or restriction of access to economic resources. RAPs are prepared by the party impacting on the people and their livelihoods. RAPs contain specific and legally binding requirements to resettle and/or to compensate the affected party before implementation of the project activities causing adverse impacts. The project measures to mitigate the impact of resettlement on any host communities, including: (a) consultations with host communities and local governments; (b) arrangements for prompt tendering of any payment due the hosts for land or other assets provided to resettlers; (c) arrangements for addressing any conflict that may arise between resettlers and host communities; and (d) any measures necessary to augment services (e.g., education, water, health, and production services) in host communities to make them at least comparable to services available to resettlers.
