Vietnam - Second Rural Energy Project : resettlement action plan (Vol. 13) : Resettlement plan for Nam Dinh Province (English)

The Second Rural Energy Project for Vietnam aims to improve access to good quality, affordable electricity services to rural communities, in an efficient and sustainable manner to support Vietnam's efforts towards socio-economic development. This resettlement action plan proposes measures to minimize land acquisition and losses during the design and construction phases of the project. Routes and substation options causing minimum impacts have been selected. Other likely impacts include: permanent impacts on trees, crops, and other assets in the proposed substations, tower foundations, and in the right-of-ways; assets on the service roads; all trees and crops or other assets surrounding the tower foundation and substation areas; and land temporarily acquired during project construction. Survey results show that thirty-five point nine (35.9) percent of the total affected area will be permanently affected, including land area for annual crops, garden areas, land for aquaculture, and public lands. There is no household losing more than 10 percent of their productive landholding. There will be 1330 households having houses or secondary structures impaired due to right-of-way of transmission lines. There are no households having business or commercial services to be affected. No impacts on natural preservation zones, vestigial remains, pagodas, or other sensitive areas are expected. No commune having ethnic minorities will be affected by subprojects. With the extent of impacts being mostly marginal, all displaced persons opt for cash compensation for their impacted land and assets at replacement costs or market rates. Development of resettlement sites is not required. All displaced persons to be resettled are entitled to transport allowance, relocation subsidy, training, or other income restoration measures. Those displaced persons losing more than 10 percent of their land holdings will be entitled to rehabilitation assistance and/or training. The report also discusses the manner of public participation and consultation, grievance mechanisms put in place, institutional arrangements, the resettlement implementation schedule, cost estimates, and the report's disclosure.
