TILENGA PROJECT RAP 1 REPORT

The planning phase for the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP1) was initiated in March 2017, in order to prepare for the land acquisition and resettlement of the proposed Industrial Area and Access Road N1 in Kasenyi Village, Buliisa District.
The surveys we conducted between April and June 2017. The Cut-Off date was declared on May 16th 2017.
Stakeholder engagements with the local government and affected communities were carried out throughout the entire planning phase, including the following key milestones:

  • 11th April 2017: Setting-up of the District Resettlement Coordination Committee (DIRCO)
  • July 2017: Draft Strip Map disclosure
  • 4th August 2017: Local elections for PAPs to nominate and elect their representatives on the local Resettlement Planning Committee (RPC).
  • August 2017: Several meetings held with the DIRCO and RPC to discuss and refine the RAP1 compensation entitlements, resettlement options and livelihood restoration options.

The initial RAP 1 valuation report was elaborated in compliance with the Land Acquisition and Resettlement Framework valuation principles, with values computed at replacement cost based on detailed market research. The valuation report was reviewed and approved by the office of the Chief Government Valuer (CGV) on August 22nd, following which the draft RAP 1 report was submitted to the Petroleum Authority of Uganda (PAU), to the Ministry of Lands Housing and Urban Development (MLHUD) and to the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) in September 2017. Following several workshops with Government agencies and the Buliisa Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) to facilitate the review process, a second draft of the RAP1 report was submitted to Government in October 2017 for approval. 

Following additional engagements with the Project Affected Persons (PAPs) on January 6th 2018 at Kasenyi Village, the Government of Uganda team led by the Minister of Land and the Minister of Energy communicated to the PAPs that the land rate applicable for RAP1 proposed industrial area and access road N1 would be increased by the Government from 2,100,000 to 3,500,000 UGX per acre. This is therefore the final land rate value used in the RAP 1 updated valuation report which was re-submitted and approved by the CGV in January 2018.  The final comprehensive RAP 1 report was approved by the Petroleum Authority of Uganda on January 29th 2018.
