 Social baseline information to support compensation and/or resettlement

 

Challenge ID:

HCP-4103

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Social baseline information to support compensation and/or resettlement.

Theme:

ON 4.1: Environmental monitoring - Baseline historic mapping of environment and ecosystems

Consortium Lead:

Hatfield

Interviewed Company:

Hatfield

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Environmental impact assessment will require social baseline information with information on households, agricultural land use, forest use, and other livelihood information. If resettlement is required, a resettlement action plan (RAP) will need a range of information on potential areas for resettlement and data to support compensation of land use changes. Need information on land parcels, households, and land use.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Social baseline information is a critical information requirement for project development. The social license to operate depends on effective resettlement and compensation for land use and livelihood impacts. Effective planning can reduce costs and improve results.

Thematic information requirements:

Land cover

Land use

Distribution and status of infrastructure

Ortho base images

Terrain information

Topographic information

Water quantity

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Extensive ground and household surveys. Combination of available high resolution satellite imagery in combination with aerial imagery.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Improved land parcel data, agriculture land use history, and household density.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

Extraction of data from imagery is expensive.
