Details

A very first for Bangladesh, this edited book examines the complex issues of development-induced displacement and resettlement using case studies with “good practice” examples from a wide range of ongoing projects. The authors, who are largely “practitioners” in the field of resettlement studies, are well-known in the country and internationally for their expert knowledge.

The book establishes a baseline for further research on resettlement and development in Bangladesh. It is rich in well-presented case studies replete with evidence-based strategies to help prevent impoverishment amongst those displaced by development projects. The chapters in this collection address emerging issues and approaches to resettlement and thus have enriched the literature in an era of rapid economic development and change. Thus, the book will remain as a valuable resource and reference or teaching aid in academic and development circles.

In addition to the Foreword by Michael Cernea and the Introduction by the editors, the book contains thirteen chapters: Chapter One, “Resettlement in the Jamuna Multipurpose Bridge Project: Innovations and Good Practices” (Mohammad Zaman); Chapter Two, “Beyond Resettlement: The SAP II Program in the Bhairab Bridge Project” (Hafiza Khatun); Chapter Three, “Self-Managed Resettlement by Informal Settlers in the Jamuna-Meghna River Erosion Mitigation Project” (Kh. Khairul Matin); Chapter Four, “Gender and Resettlement in Bangladesh” (Bindiya Rawat); Chapter Five, “Income and Livelihood Restoration in the Tongi-Bhairab Bazar Double Line Project” (A. M. Salah Uddin); Chapter Six, “The Impact of Development on Adibasi People in Bangladesh” (Hafiza Khatun and Surinder Aggarwal); Chapter Seven, “The Padma Multipurpose Bridge Project: The Ten “Best Practices” in Resettlement Management” (Mohammad Zaman and Aqueel Khan); Chapter Eight, “Land Acquisition and Resettlement in Urban Transport Project in Dhaka City: Experience and Innovations” (Akhtar Zaman); Chapter Nine, “Resettlement in RCIP-Rail Projects: A Review of the Planning Experience” (Saifulla Dostogir and Aktarul Islam Khan); Chapter Ten, “Resettlement Planning and Implementation: Making Things Happen” (Albab Akanda); Chapter 11, “Training and Capacity Building in Resettlement Management: The MLARR Program at BRAC University” (Ferdous Jahan and Sharif A. Wahab); Chapter Twelve, “External Monitoring in CEIP-1 Project: Review and Early Experience” (Jan T. Twarowski); and Chapter Thirteen, “Toward a Land Acquisition and Resettlement Law for Bangladesh: Issues for Consideration” (Mohammad Zaman and Hafiza Khatun.)

Index

“This book is an invaluable source of ideas and references for those seeking to understand resettlement methods and practices in Bangladesh.” - K. Maudood Elahi, Professor, Department of Environmental Sciences and Pro-Vice Chancellor, Stamford University, Dhaka, Bangladesh

"This book examines the complex issues of displacement and resettlement with several case studies of good practices in resettlement risk management in Bangladesh. A very useful work that should be of interest to everyone in resettlement studies globally." - Professor Shi Guoqing, Former Dean, Faculty of Public Administration, and Director - National Research Centre for Resettlement, Hohai University, Nanjing, PRC

“This is a praiseworthy book, rich in well-presented case studies replete with evidence-based strategies to help prevent impoverishment amongst those displaced by development projects. Well done!” - Susanna Price, Lecturer (Hon), College of Asia and the Pacific, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia

"This significant new work focuses on emerging issues and approaches to resettlement from a range of ongoing development projects in Bangladesh; it enriches literature in an area of rapidly growing interest, and will remain a valuable resource." - Hari Mohan Mathur, Distinguished Professor, Council for Social Development, New Delhi, India

"A very important first for Bangladesh, it is an important contribution to the literature on displacement and resettlement." - Ruwani Jayewardene, Social Safeguards/Resettlement Specialist, Colombo, Sri Lanka

Since this is the first major collection of case studies of displacement and resettlement in Bangladesh, it is expected to reach a wide readership in both academic and development circles. It will be particularly useful for relevant government departments, multilateral/bilateral development agencies, policymakers, development planners, practitioners, researchers, trainers, consultants and NGOs with particular interest in resettlement and social development. It will also be equally useful for students in social sciences, public policy and international development studies. The breadth of issues covered in the various chapters means that the book could serve as a reference/textbook in many interdisciplinary courses/studies.
