A right to consultation during the resettlement process for all displaced persons


Measurement unit
Index (A; C)

This indicator asks whether national laws provide displaced populations with the right to be consulted during the resettlement process after their land is expropriated. This indicator is based on section 16.8 of the VGGTs, which establishes that "States should, prior to eviction or shift in land use which could result in depriving individuals and communities from access to their productive resources, explore feasible alternatives in consultation with the affected parties, consistent with the principles of these Guidelines, with a view to avoiding, or at least minimizing, the need to resort to evictions."
