Preparation and Implementation of Resettlement Action Plans (RAPs)

Involuntary Resettlement occurs as a result of project-related land acquisition, permanent or temporary and restrictions on community use of land, associated natural and customary resources. The disruption or displacement can be physical and/or economic and voluntary or involuntary.
