For decades, policy-makers in government, development banks and foundations, NGOs, researchers and students have struggled with the problem of how to protect people who are displaced from their homes and livelihoods by development projects.

Their book will be valuable for readers in a wide range of fields including ethics, development studies, politics and international relations as well as policy making, project management and community development.The IFC Handbook for Preparing a Resettlement Action Plan seeks a#39;to provide guidance in the planning and execution of involuntary resettlement associated with IFC-investment projectsa#39; in conformity with OD 4.30 (World Bank, Internationalanbsp;...
