Vietnam - Haiphong Urban Transport Development Project : resettlement plan (Vol. 2) : Khung chính sách boi thuong, ho tro và tái dinh cu (Vietnamese)

The development objective of the Haiphong Urban Transport Project of Vietnam is to: a) overcome traffic congestion and reduce traffic accidents and environmental pollution in the city centre caused by heavy vehicles travelling to and from the ports; b) promote the development of the city economy focusing on satisfying the transportation demands going in and out of the ports in the northern key economic area and Hai Phong city; c) connect efficiently with the existing urban traffic infrastructure systems and prepare for construction to promote concentrated urbanization in Hai Phong's urban centre; d) provide a model pilot to improve the public transport services in urban areas especially the central area and the developed high density corridor; and e) build the operational capacity and efficiency of state agencies and develop human resources for transportation and urbanization. Along with positive impacts on socio-economic development and social lives, the project will also cause negative impacts to households involved in land acquisition and site clearance, and in the area through which the project passes. Identifying the negative impacts of land acquisition and site clearance, and proposing mitigation measures, is essential to eliminate or reduce negative impacts and the following measures are applied: i) in the finalization stage of the route and preliminary design, appropriate technical designs and construction plans have been made to detour around residential areas. If negative impacts on properties are unavoidable, adequate compensation plans will be made to at least cover or restore any damages; ii) in the early stages of the project's design, activities for disseminating information about the project, land acquisition, site clearance, compensation and resettlement have been widely propagated to gain people's participation and support; iii) the project is conducting the survey and design on-site resettlement areas. Relocated people will be able to live near their former residences, so their customary practices and relationships with relatives and neighbors will be maintained resulting in limited disruptions of social structures; iv) all agriculture lands which were assigned to farmers will be withdrawn then re-allocated to them by 2013. In case their agriculture land is taken before year 2013, they will benefit from the compensation payment (if it is not taken, it will be also withdrawn and re-allocated); v) the area in Hai An district is used for growing flowers. The projects land acquisition affects not only their production but also the cultural characteristics of the region, so the plans for this area have been carefully considered to minimize land acquisition in such area that have been allow people to continue their cultivation and preserve their culture; vi) the project impacts in An Duong district are on households which are growing decorative plants. Therefore, the land acquisition implementation schedule and the construction time should be informed in advance. In case, the impact is not avoidable, compensation for agriculture land, crop and other assistance for such specific business loss will be paid to the displace persons (DPs); and vii) In the next stage, there will be further comprehensive studies and recommendations for resolving negative social and cultural impacts, including avoiding the infiltration of social evils, decreasing traffic accidents after the project in operation, etc. Specific action programs and implementation mechanisms will be established to increase awareness, maintain accessibility to the existing systems, and enhance the benefits of the Project for the local people.
