Resettlement and Compensation Policy Framework

Client : EEM/CBG (ALCOA)

Region / Country: Africa | Guinea
Sectors: Mining
Services: Social management


The Compagnie des Bauxites de Guinée (CBG) plans to extend its bauxite mine in the Sub-Prefecture of Sangarédi. This expansion project has the objective to increase the shipment volume from 13.5 tons in 2013 to 22.5 tons in 2017, and 27.5 tons in 2022. These activities would impact the villages located close to the mining site and in particular the villages of Hamdallaye and Fassaly Foutabe, that have to be relocated. The project objective was to elaborate the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) Framework, identify the people impacted by the project, estimate their lands and assets, as well as to create the price and eligibility matrices, necessary to the RAP implementation.


The individuals that have to be resettled were listed and their lands and assets were pre-inventoried in order to estimate the budget for the resettlement process. The budget for the compensation plan was calculated and the implementation process was designed in compliance with the national and international standards. Finally, the georeferenced database created by Insuco constituted an operational tool for the RAP finalisation and implementation.
