Cambodia - Greater Mekong Subregion - Power Trade Phase 1 Project : environmental assessment (English)

This resettlement action plan for the Greater Mekong Subregion Power Trade Project for Cambodia 1) identifies design, construction, and maintenance measures to avoid or mitigate potential adverse impacts, to be incorporated into the final design; 2) identifies the people affected by the transmission lines and substation sites, and losses incurred to physical and non-physical assets affected, including homes, homesteads, productive lands, commercial properties, tenancy, income-earning opportunities, social and cultural activities and relationships, and other losses; and 3) aims to assist affected people in developing their social and economic potential in order to improve or at least restore their incomes and living standards to pre-project levels. The project encompasses 43 villages in 10 communes, two districts, and six villages in 1 commune. There is not much agricultural land within the proposed alignments. When necessary to construct transmission lines across agricultural land, the land on which the tower is to be built will be permanently acquired. Compensation will be provided to affected persons whose land is acquired to build towers. Trees will be either removed or periodically prunes to provide needed line clearance, while minor pruning will be required for insulated distribution lines. The SWER alignment will avoid palm trees (primarily sugar palms) in preference to trees grown for wood and smaller fruit trees as many of these trees can be pruned to provide the necessary line clearance without killing trees. Although all land belongs to the State under the Land Law, private property rights regarding possession, use of land and rights of inheritance are recognized by this Law. Under the National Constitution of 1993, the right of private land ownership is recognized and land expropriation is prohibited, except in the national interest and with payment of just and fair compensation.
