Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF)

The issue of resettlement pose a major challenge to the REDD+ project implementation because it may displaces and results in relocation or loss of shelter to the persons residing in the project area, assets being lost or livelihoods being affected. As a result of involuntary resettlement program, grievance and dispute may trigger between the project implementer (mostly government) and the community.
Grievance and disputes may arise at several stages of REDD+. Some of the sources of grievance while implementing REDD+ could be inadequate or poor communication, sensitization and information sharing, inadequate consultation and coordination with stakeholders and concern over exclusion in decision making, limited institutional capacity, policy contradictions and gaps, negative impacts of (new) restrictions on physical access to forest and forest resources, disagreements over excising of forest areas and certain boundaries, inadequate information, and understanding of the concepts of co-management and benefit sharing and others which will be further identified in this assessment. Thus, in order to formulate grievance redress mechanism, the following methodological framework will be used:

  • Review of relevant documents, policies, proclamations,
  • Identification of all source of grievance through conducting focus group discussion and key informant interview,
  • Evaluation of existing traditional grievance redress mechanisms( Aba-Geda, Yehager shemagle, religious institutions, and others),
  • Evaluation of formal grievance redress mechanisms( Ombudsman, Judiciary)
  • Formulation of grievance redress mechanism.
