Philippines - Social Inclusion and Alternative Livelihood for the Informal Waste Sector Project : resettlement plan (English)

The objective of the Social Inclusion and Alternative Livelihood for the Informal Waste Sector Project for Philippines is to ensure that all displaced persons are compensated for their losses and provided with assistance to improve, or at least maintain, their pre-project living standards and income earning capacity. Negative measures include: loss of land acquisition, loss of crops and trees, loss of asset, loss of income, and loss of livelihood. Mitigation measures include: a) displaced persons will be compensated for the loss of standing crops and fruit or industrial trees at full (current) market price; b) displaced persons whose land is temporarily taken by the works under the project will be compensated for their loss of income, standing crops and for the cost of soil restoration and damaged infrastructure, including a reasonable amount for opportunity costs; c) if more than 20 percent of a person's agricultural land is acquired and the remaining holding is not viable, then the project will acquire the entire landholding and provide compensation of the acquired land at direct land replacement; and d) the general mechanism for compensation of lost agricultural land will be through provision of 'land for land' arrangements of equal productive capacity, satisfactory to the displaced persons. However, if the displaced persons so wish and the portion of the land to be lost represents 20 percent or less of the total area of the landholding, and the remaining land is still a viable economic holding, cash compensation, at full replacement cost (market value), will be provided to the displaced persons.
