Sample text

Seven characteristics of recent progress in social research are defined and contrasted with the paucity of economic research on resettlement. Displacements impose major economic and social risks upon the affected people. Absence of economic research partly explains the obsolete methodology of economic and financial analysis employed for planning involuntary resettlements and thus accounts for some of the enormous difficulties and failures of such operations. The paper argues that the method of cost-benefit analysis, and the conventional project risk and sensitivity analyses used in projects entailing resettlement, are incapable of answering displacement's economic and financial challenges and in practice tolerate the structural underfinancing of resettlement operations.

Thus, the model captures the loss by displaced people of all types of capitalnatural, manmade (physical), human, and socialas well as loss of opportunities and entitlements held at the prior location. The model is also a tool for risk management, suggesting strategies for countering the risks. The eight risks occur with varying intensity in different contents. Concisely, they are defined below: LANDLESSNESS. Expropriation of land removes the main foundation upon which people's productive systems, commercial activities, and livelihoods are constructed.

This is not a minor issue, though I'd call it one of the best-kept secrets of resettlement misplanning and failure. When resettlement costs are underestimated (whether deliberately or by error), allocations of financial resources for displacees fall short, often by large amounts. Thus displacees and hosts are forced to bear out of pocket a share of the cost, reducing the standard of living for all. Exacerbating the problems are budget constraints, often limited or absent political commitment, inflexible allocation procedures, and the fact that procedures are limited to instruments of compensation economics.
