This policy brief provides recommendations to governments and practitioners on the use of planned relocation for communities affected by climate change.
Governments and practitioners should:
- Approach relocation from a wider resilience perspective. Employ flexible solutions to land and other resource access based on people’s own livelihood strategies.
- Ensure that relocation is driven by real needs, not political interests. Support checks and balances in decision making to prevent unwarranted relocations.
- Support fora for conflict resolution and expression of grievances. This includes statutory fora but also alternative mechanisms.
