Philippines - Methane Recovery from Waste Management Project : resettlement plan (English)

The objective of the Methane Recovery from Waste Management Project for Philippines is to support environmental protection and promote sustainable development, while mitigating carbon credit risks, e.g., under-delivery of carbon credits, and other risks arising from different types of operational non-compliance. Some of the negative impacts and their mitigation measures include: 1) displaced persons (DPs) losing all of their lands and structures, or incurring partial loss but where the remaining assets and properties are determined by competent authorities as not viable anymore for continued use will be paid full compensation for the entire asset at replacement cost. The compensation for the entire asset at replacement cost may be given in cash or in kind. The project owner will assume ownership of the said asset upon payment of full compensation thereof; 2) granting of rehabilitation support in the form of special skills training, project-related employment, micro-credit or other self-help socio-economic support to DPs who are severely affected due to the loss of productive assets and/or their primary source of income and which will require them to engage in some other income earning activities. If needed, the project owner will coordinate closely with concerned government agencies that have the mandate and the expertise to undertake the needed rehabilitation assistance; 3) rehabilitation support will also be granted to severely affected vulnerable groups such as indigenous groups, single parent households, the handicapped, the elderly, etc., who have the least capacity to cope with the adverse social and economic impacts of development projects; and 4) where relocation is considered necessary, the lot owner of the proposed relocation site will also be entitled to compensation for his/her land, and depending on his/her choice, the compensation may be in cash or in the form of replacement land, of the same value, within or outside the relocation site.
