Afghanistan - Emergency Irrigation Rehabilitation Project : resettlement plan (Inglês)

The objective of the ongoing Emergency Irrigation Rehabilitation Project (EIRP) in Afghanistan remains unchanged to restore irrigated agricultural production in rural areas, through improved and reliable water supply to rehabilitated traditional irrigation schemes. Following principles must be followed to mitigate the negative impacts of the project: 1) all land should be survey and mapped and agreement reached with government on explicit eligibility cut-off date; 2) where land is disputed or land ownership is not clear, the land will be surveyed and a map hereof issued to the affected families. In case of land disputes, attempts should be made to settle disputes prior to project start; 3) customary and collective rights, e.g. to grazing land and commons, should be verified and documented through community-level consultations and local authorities. Customary and collective rights are also subject to compensation; 4) compensation for land, housing and assets are based on principles of replacement cost and mutually agreeable solutions based on consultative approach with project affected persons (PAPs); 5) where affected land provide income, the equivalent to the value of the crop lost will be given in compensation, based on the value of the harvests lost until the replacement crop (e.g. fruit tress) come into full production; 6) if land forms basis for other income, the value of the income hereof will be subject to third party assessment ; and 7) if PAPs are squatters/informal settlers on the land, they will receive economic/material compensation to re-establish themselves elsewhere without suffering damage to their livelihood or living standard.
