Description

This resettlement plan for the Greater Mekong Subregion Tourism Infrastructure for the Chomphet Heritage District Access Improvements subproject under the Inclusive Growth - Lao PDR contains an assessment and measures, as well as time-bound actions and budgets, for the project components which have involuntary resettlement.

Upgrading of the 250 meter Mekong vehicle ferry terminal ramp and 250 meters of existing internal roads in Ban Xieng Mene will have temporary resettlement impacts during the period of construction on 21 businesses / residences situated alongside the public road that leads from the ferry landing and through the Xieng Mene market. The subproject activities will have temporary impacts on the structures and the business income of 21 owners and 3 tenants for a total of 24 affected households. Three affected households are tenants that will experience temporary loss of business income only (owners will be compensated for structures).
