India - Rajasthan Agricultural Competitiveness Project : resettlement policy framework (Vol. 2) : Social assessment and management framework (English)

The development objective of the Rajasthan Agricultural Competitiveness Project (RACP) for India is to demonstrate at scale the feasibility of a range of distinct agricultural development approaches integrating technology, organization, institution and market innovations across selected regions of Rajasthan each marked by different agro-ecological, climatic, water resource and social conditions capable of significantly increasing agricultural productivity and farmer incomes. Negative impacts and their mitigation measures include: (1) only poor and vulnerable households (SC, ST, BPL, marginal farmers, landless, women headed households, non title holders, sharecroppers, agriculture labor etc) will be eligible for any livelihood assistance; (2) eligible households need to be assessed and endorsed by the other subproject beneficiaries and supported by the Gram Sabah. These households would also include non-titled persons currently dependent on common/pancyahat lands for shelter, livelihoods; (3) suitable assistance will be provided to user/s losing access to grazing lands, which may adversely impact their livelihoods; (4) compensation for replacement of temporary structures and allowance for relocating them would be provided; (5) tenants, share croppers and lease holders on common/panchayat lands will be entitled to reimbursement of unexpired lease value; and (6) loss of standing trees, crops on leased land would be compensated at market rate.
