Resettlement and Rehabilitation Indicators | Land Portal

This group of indicators assesses whether national laws comply with Section 16.9 of the VGGTs. Section 16.9 of the VGGTs provides that “Evictions and relocations should not result in individuals being rendered homeless or vulnerable to the violation of human rights. Where those affected are unable to provide for themselves, States should, to the extent that resources permit, take appropriate measures to provide adequate alternative housing, resettlement or access to productive land, fisheries and forests, as the case may be.”

  • 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.
