Ghana - Water Restructuring Project : resettlement action plan : Resettlement policy framework (الإنجليزية)

Driving principles of the project resettlement policy are as follows: Any impact on land or people should comply with the Constitution of Ghana, other Ghanaian regulations, and the world Bank safeguard policy on involuntary resettlement (OP4.12). Where there are gaps or inconsistencies between Ghanaian laws and Bank policy, Bank policy will apply. Wherever inhabited dwellings may potentially be affected by a component or subcomponent, the subproject shall be redesigned (facility relocation, rerouting) to avoid any impact on such dwellings and to avoid displacement/relocation accordingly. Wherever the impact on the land holding of one of particular household is such that the households may not be sustainable in the long term, even if there is no need to physically displace this household, the subproject shall be redesigned (facility relocation. Rerouting) to avoid any such impact. Minimization of land impact will be factored into site and technology selection and design criteria. Pipelines, public taps, other linear infrastructures (power lines) required by the project will be routed inside existing right-of-ways, easements, or reservations (roads, streets, power lines) wherever possible. For each subproject, a cut-off date will be determined, taking into account the likely implementation schedule of the subproject, to avoid massive encroachment of non-eligible occupants into project-affected spaces. People occupying project-affected land at the cut-off date are subject to project resettlement policy, which includes both those who have legal rights to land, including customarily recognized rights and occupants who have no legal right to the land they are occupying (those usually considered in Ghana as "squatters."). Where the impact on land is such that people may be affected in the sustainability of their livelihoods, preference will be given to land-for-land solutions rather than cash compensation, and livelihood restoration measures will be taken. Compensation will be paid prior to displacement/land entry, and will be at full value. Information and consultation will take place in each location affected by the project, and grievance mechanisms will be put in place.
