Transparent, participatory and sensitiviness in expropiation indicators | Land Portal

This group of indicators assesses whether national laws comply with Section 16.1 of the VGGTs. Section 16.1 of the VGGTs states “States should ensure that the planning and process for expropriation are transparent and participatory. Anyone likely to be affected should be identified, and properly informed and consulted at all stages. Consultations, consistent with the principles of these Guidelines, should provide information regarding possible alternative approaches to achieve the public purpose, and should have regard to strategies to minimize disruption of livelihoods. States should be sensitive where proposed expropriations involve areas of particular cultural, religious or environmental significance, or where the land, fisheries and forests in question are particularly important to the livelihoods of the poor or vulnerable.” 

  • If the national laws assessed fully adopt the VGGT principle, then a score of "A" is given.

  • If the national laws assessed partially adopt the VGGT principle, then a score of "B" is given.

  • If the national laws assessed do not adopt the VGGT principle, then a score of "C" is given.
