Impacts that trigger op 4 12

IMPACTS THAT TRIGGER OP 4.12

OP/BP 4.12 is triggered when a Bank investment causes

  • Involuntary taking of land that results in direct social and economic impacts such as:

    • Loss of shelter leading to relocation

    • Loss of assets or access to assets

    • Loss of income sources or means of livelihood (whether or not the affected persons must move to another location)

  • Involuntary restriction of access to legally designated parks and protected areas that result in adverse impacts on the livelihoods of affected persons


Policy objectives

Avoid involuntary resettlement where feasible, or minimize it, exploring all viable alternative project designs

Consult affected persons meaningfully and provide opportunities to participate in planning and implementing resettlement programs

Assist affected persons in their efforts to improve their livelihoods and standards of living or at least to restore them, in real terms, to pre-displacement levels

POLICY OBJECTIVES


Scope and coverage of op 412

SCOPE AND COVERAGE OF OP.412

OP 4.12 applies to

  • all components of the project that require land take, regardless of the source of financing

  • other activities requiring land take that are

    • directly and significantly related to the Bank-assisted project

    • necessary to achieve its objectives as set forth in the project documents

    • carried out, or planned to be carried out, contemporaneously with the project


Impacts covered by op4 12 yes or no

IMPACTS COVERED BY OP4.12yes or no?

  • Business losses caused by rerouting of road away from existing village

  • Loss of farmland inundated by a reservoir

  • Loss of jobs due to Bank-financed privatization project

  • Loss of dwelling due to construction of a drainage canal

  • Devaluation of property due to Bank-financed solid waste dump nearby


Mitigation measures

Inform affected persons about their rights/ options pertaining to land acquisition/ resettlement

Provide prompt and effective compensation at full replacement cost for losses of assets attributable directly to the project

Provide resettlement assistance for vulnerable affected people

MITIGATION MEASURES


Mitigation measures1

Options can be “land for land” if livelihoods land-based; Cash possible if land taken is a small fraction of the affected asset and residual is viable

Link Compensation/ Resettlement implementation to project timetable

MITIGATION MEASURES


Who is eligible

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

The borrower carries out a census to identify those affected and eligible for assistance:

1.Those who have formal legal rights to land [compensation]

2.Those who do not have formal legal rights to land at the time the census begins but have a claim to such land or assets [compensation]

3.Those who have no recognizable legal right or claim to the land that they are occupying [resettlement assistance]


Resettlement instruments

RESETTLEMENT INSTRUMENTS

  • Resettlement (Action) Plan*

    • When it is possible to determine scale of adverse impacts and affected population during project preparation, prior to appraisal

  • Abbreviated Resettlement (Action) Plan

    • When impacts are minor or if fewer than 200 people are displaced

* Or Land Acquisition (Action) Plan


Resettlement instruments cont

RESETTLEMENT INSTRUMENTS cont.

  • Resettlement Policy Framework

    • When not possible to identify precise siting alignments or specific impacts/affected population during project preparation (financial intermediary operations, and projects with multiple subprojects),

    • A Resettlement Action Plan is prepared for each subproject that may involve land acquisition, before the subproject is accepted for Bank financing

  • Process Framework

    • For projects involving restriction of access to resources in legally designated parks or protected areas

    • No separate Resettlement Action Plan required
