Land Access and Resettlement is a key social risk for the natural resources sector, particularly the mining and oil & gas industries, who are operating in a context of increased awareness and regulation regarding the potential social impacts of their activities.

At the same time, companies increasingly appreciate the business case for ‘getting social right’.

This book provides a practical road map to corporate leaders, project managers, practitioners, academia, government and civil society for practically planning and implementing successful land access and resettlement, and creating win-win outcomes for companies and communities.

While there is existing literature available on resettlement, including IFC and World Bank standards and guidance notes, what is missing is this up-to-date, accessible and practical guide on how to optimally plan for, implement and review land access and resettlement, and avoid pitfalls, based on the main lessons that have been learned on-the-ground over the past decade.

Intersocial have planned, implemented and reviewed over 50 land access and resettlement projects in 30+ countries internationally, and conducted benchmarking exercises on a further 60 projects.  The experience of over 100 projects in 40+ countries is the basis for the book.
