After signing a contract with the Niger government, MCC has planned to fund several projects to develop the national agricultural sector, including building/rehabilitating roads and irrigation canals. In some cases these projects require the Resettlement of people and/or land losses. Insuco has been responsible to design a Livelihoods Compensation Plan in order for the client to compensate the losses induced by the project, including irrigated land losses.
The methodology, strategic plan involving all stakeholders and the Resettlement Action Plan, among other elements, were discussed together with the client as the activities were implemented. The client received a final geo-referenced database that includes all the affected households, their impacted lands and goods, as well as a report containing the Livelihoods Compensation Plan.
