Azerbaijan - Second Highway Project : resettlement policy framework (anglais)

The Government of Azerbaijan has requested the World Bank's (WB) support for improving several road segments to the west and south of Baku over a several year period. It is proposed that the Azerbaijan Motorway Improvement and Development or Second Highway Project will include the: (i) rehabilitation of existing roads between Baku and Shamaki, a 120 km section of the east-west transport between Baku and Tbilisi; (ii) upgrade of the M3 Motorway between Alyat and Astara, including expansion of the existing 2-lane road to a 4-lane road, and construction of new 4 lane roads and bypasses around key towns. Some of the negative impacts of the project are as follows: relocation or loss of shelter, loss of assets or access to assets, loss of trees, loss of income/source of livelihood, acquisition of land, loss of annual crop production, and loss of immovable assets and land attachment. The mitigation measures of the project are as follows: (i) cash compensation for loss of net income and wages for 3 months; (ii) cash compensation to be paid before reconstruction; (iii) compensation for lost land at market value, or provision of replacement land of equivalent quality and comparable location, if acceptable to the owner; (iv) compensation for any productive trees market prices, and adequate resettlement plan that addresses the needs of affected households to be relocated, including vulnerable groups; (v) resettled people should be assisted with their move and supported during their transition period at the resettlement site; and (vi) assisted in their efforts to improve their former living standards, income earning capacity and production levels or at least to restore them.
