Household RELOCATION planS
A detailed household move plan is developed for each relocation to ensure the success of relocation. The plan covers three phases: (1) before the move, (2) the actual move, and (3) after the move.
Before the move
The primary components of the pre-move phase include:
- The creation and distribution of a detailed, overarching relocation booklet called ‘Amina’s Big Move’ to prepare community members for displacement and the move to Quitunda Village. Amina’s Big Move is told from the perspective of a young girl whose family is relocating.
- A third-party implementation partner provided social preparation including: (i) village induction and integration; (ii) basic sanitation and hygiene; and (iii) basic house operations and maintenance.
- Health screenings for each resettlement household, including (i) assessing the physical and mental states of household members; (ii) referring discovered issues to the relevant medical services for treatment prior to relocation; and (iii) documenting any concerns for reassessment post-move.
In 2019, the first of the new community members moved into their new homes in Quitunda Village as part of Phase 1 in the resettlement plan.
The actual move
In addition to the relocation allowance to support households moving into Quitunda Village, the project operator will provide relocation assistance, including:
- Preparing a relocation plan and checklist
- Ensuring household readiness for relocation
- Capturing, crating, and uncrating livestock for new livestock shelter
- Transporting household members to new homes
- Providing three months of food packages
- Providing a welcome box of basic household cleaning goods
After the move
After the move, the project operator carries out follow-up visits to the resettled households. These visits will focus on household health to ensure they are settling in well.
