Gambia - Community Development Project : resettlement policy framework (Inglês)

This resettlement policy framework for the Gambia Community Development Project, which decentralizes rural development and health care delivery, sets out the resettlement and compensation policy, organizational arrangements, and design criteria to be applied to meet the needs of project affected people Affected persons who have formal legal rights as well as those who have a recognized claim to land or assets through the national or traditional laws of the Gambia will be provided compensation, resettlement, and rehabilitation assistance for the land, building, or fixed assets on the land and buildings taken by the project. Affected persons who have no recognizable legal right or claim to land they are occupying, using or getting their livelihood from are to be provided with resettlement assistance in lieu of compensation for the land they occupy, as well as provide other necessary assistance set forth in the report. For loss of assets, all will receive compensation, including squatters or others encroaching on the project areas illegally as long as they are within the cut-off date. Compensation measures for communities shall ensure that the pre-settlement socio-economic status of communities are restored and maintained, and can include that for public toilets, market places, car parks and health posts. Individual and household compensation will be made in kind and/or through assistance. Although the type of compensation may be an individual's choice, compensation in kind will be preferred. For cash payments, compensation will be calculated in Gambian currency adjusted for inflation. For compensation in kind, items such as land, houses, other buildings, building materials, seedlings, agricultural inputs and financial credits for equipment may be included. Assistance may include moving allowance, transportation, and labor. Compensation for land is aimed at providing for loss of crop and the labor used to cultivate the crop. Compensation relating to land will cover the market price of labor invested, as well as the replacement cost of the crop lost. Compensation for building and structures will be paid by replacing huts, houses, farm outbuildings, latrines and fences. Any homes lost will be rebuilt on the acquired replacement land. However cash compensation would be available as a preferred option for structures such as extra buildings lost, that are not the main house or house in which someone is living. The applicable replacement costs for construction materials will be used to calculate the values. Alternatively, compensation will be paid in-kind for the replacement cost without depreciation of the structure. The project will survey and update construction material prices on an ongoing basis. Vegetable are planted for daily use. Until a replacement garden can be harvested, the family displaced (economically or physically) as a result of the project will have to purchase these items on the market. Given their significance to the local subsistence economy, fruit trees will be compensated on a combined replacement value. Fruit trees such as coconut and cashew trees for commercial purposes in The Gambia will be compensated at replacement value based on historical production statistics, the age of tree and the commodity's market prices at pick season.
