The management of Land Acquisition, Resettlement and Rehabilitation (MLARR) has become an integral part of the process of infrastructural development. However, a major challenge in this regard is the weak institutional and human resources capacity to address land acquisition and involuntary resettlement globally.

This is reflected in the limited professional staff, knowledge, technical expertise and operational experiences in resettlement policies, planning, implementation and management. Many countries have developed legislative and policy framework to manage issues in land acquisition, resettlement, rehabilitation and social safeguard.

This Hohai University training program will focus on the international standards and good practices, as well as on lessons learned from case studies in China and globally. It includes a 5-day field trip to the Three Gorges Dam and the Gezhouba Dam Projects. The field visits include presentations by the project staff, discussions, and field trips to resettlement sites.

The training program is targeted to an international audience – people who are involved in project planning and implementation, project managers, practitioners and people involved in project administration from public and private institutions or international financial institutions. The course is delivered by some of the world’s leading social assessment and resettlement practitioners.
