Resettlement Management Framework (RMF) WSSP-II/WSDP-II

The Government of Tanzania (GoT), through the Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MoWI) is implementing the Water Sector Development Programme (WSDP) or “the Programme”, for the period 2006–2025.The first phase of the project (WSDP-I) started in July 2007 and the Additional Financing closed at the end of December 2015. The second phase of Programme (WSDP-II) is been implemented from 2015 until June 2019. The WSDP I and II were set up as a SWAP arrangement with a number of DPsproviding financing in the form of basket lending. The WB provided basket lending for WSDP I, but not for WSDP II.

Under the proposed Second Water Sector Support Project (WSSP-II), the World Bank will finance specifically defined activities of the WSDP-II. The WB is not supporting the overall WSDP-II, as such the World Bank’s safeguard policies, are not required to be applied to the Programme. The specific activities financed by the World Bank under WSSP-II or activities linked thereto (as defined under OP/BP 4.01 and OP/BP 4.12) are referenced herein as the “WSSP-II Activities”. The GoT and other DPs involved in WSDP-II may choose to use this Resettlement Management Framework (RMF) as a reference document for the environmental and social management. However, accordingly, the Bank will not and has no obligation to review or clear any safeguard instruments or perform any supervision or monitoring with respect to any other activity than the WSSP-II.

The overall objective of this Resettlement Management Framework (RMF)for the WSSP-II, is to guide the MoWI and the Implementing Agencies (IAs) in the compliance of the national law and the World Bank’s Involuntary Resettlement Policy (OP/BP 4.12) during WSSP-II implementation,by defining concepts, principles, methodologies, tools, and procedures that should be applied during the “project cycle”.
