Resettlement Policy Framework of the Cambodia Sustainable Landscape and Ecotourism Project

This document is the Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF) for the proposed Cambodia Sustainable Landscape and Ecotourism Project (CSLEP) prepared by the Ministry of Environment (MOE) with support of the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD). Given that the CSLEP will involve connective infrastructure (e.g. improvement of rural roads) and the construction of small ecotourism facilities, there is a potential for land or land-fixed assets to be impacted. Therefore, the World Bank’s Operational Policy 4.12 on Involuntary Resettlement is triggered and the Royal Government of Cambodia’s Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) on Land Acquisition and Involuntary Resettlement (LAR) apply. However, given that the exact location of sub-projects will not be known until implementation, a Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF) has been prepared that details the requirements for the preparation and implementation of site-specific Resettlement Action Plans (RAPs) once locations are known.
