Resettlement

Section 5.11 Achievements (p.73): the issue of resettlement is a complicated one; studies have shown that the impact on the level of poverty of the population is not necessarily positive.

We would welcome receiving information on the Government’s plans 2016-2020 on how many people will be affected by the Government’s resettlement plans.

Section 7.11 Sam Sang (p.112): Future orientations stress the need to “agglomerate big villages” and “resettle the people by allocating new places to stay”. There is a need to be very careful with that orientation as this could have a negative impact on the socio-economic and nutritional status of the populations displaced.
