What is RAP?

Implementing a Resettlement and Rehabilitation Action Plan (RAP) requires careful planning, consultation with stakeholders, compensation and entitlements for affected people, resettlement planning, implementation of resettlement, and monitoring and evaluation of the plan’s implementation.

TILA ensures successful resettlement and rehabilitation by following these steps

Consultation with stakeholders

Once the RAP has been prepared, the next step is to consult with the affected people and other stakeholders. This includes local communities, civil society organizations, government agencies, and project developers. Consultations should be conducted openly and transparently and provide an opportunity for affected people to provide input into the RAP.

Compensation and entitlements

The next step is to provide compensation and entitlements to the affected people. This may include compensation for land, assets, and livelihoods that have been lost or damaged. The RAP should outline the criteria for compensation and entitlements and ensure they are fair, transparent, and adequate.

Resettlement planning

Once compensation and entitlements have been provided, the next step is to plan the resettlement of the affected people. This may involve providing new housing, infrastructure, and social services in a new location. The RAP should ensure that the resettlement site is suitable for the needs of the affected people and that they are involved in the planning process.

Implementation of resettlement

It involves the construction of new housing and infrastructure, the provision of social services, and the relocation of affected people to the new site. The RAP should ensure that the resettlement is carried out in a manner that is safe, dignified, and respectful of the cultural and social needs of the affected people.

Monitoring and evaluation

The final step in implementing a RAP is to monitor and evaluate its implementation. This involves tracking progress against the timelines and budget, as well as assessing the impact of the resettlement and rehabilitation on the affected people. The RAP should also provide for a grievance mechanism that allows affected people to voice any concerns they may have about implementing the plan.
