IAIA Special Symposium Resettlement & Livelihoods
04 March 2014
Kruger National Park, South Africa, Africa
The symposium from 20-24 October 2014 will improve understanding of land access and resettlement issues, share lessons learned and discuss opportunities to improve performance.
Across the world, land access for public and private sector projects often causes significant physical and economic displacement of communities. Resettlement is typically fraught with challenges, risks and controversy. Poorly undertaken resettlement can result in a number of impoverishment risks, like landlessness, marginalization, food insecurity and social disarticulation. The symposium will improve understanding of land access and resettlement issues, share lessons learned and discuss opportunities to improve performance.
Symposium topics include:
Government and private sector-led resettlements
Livelihood restoration and improvement
Integrated planning, assessment and monitoring
Security of land tenure
Alignment between international standards, corporate policies and national legislation
Engagement and community relations
Negotiation and consultation
Project-related employment and procurement opportunities
In-migration
Culturally appropriate resettlement housing
International and Mozambican case studies
