“Though the issues relating to Land Acquisition, Resettlement and Rehabilitation (LARR) is near universal, there is little or no experience sharing across different projects and countries. This special issue tries to bridge the gap,” said Dr Reshmy Nair.

This book showcases the works and experiences of experts who took part in a week-long South-South Learning Event, organised by the ASCI in collaboration with the World Bank and Australian AID in May 2013.

The event was attended by 110 delegates from 20 countries. The delegates included practitioners, government officials, university faculty, think tanks and international development partners. Experiences were shared among countries at policy, management and operational levels and across major infrastructure sectors.

In her message, Vandana Kumari Jena, secretary, Department of Land Resources, Ministry of Rural Development, said, “I greatly appreciate the contribution of ASCI for its continuing efforts in knowledge-sharing and capacity-building on this topic of much contemporary relevance.”
