Description

In July 2014, the EIB Complaints Mechanism (EIB-CM) received a complaint concerning the involuntary resettlement related to the expansion of activities in the Olkaria geothermal field. Between August and September 2014, the EIB-CM received 3 additional complaints on the same matter. The allegations concern the preparation and implementation of the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP). More particularly, it is alleged that Project Affected People (PAPs) had been requested to leave their places without being provided with the land titles and without the infrastructure being finalised. They also alleged that a number of PAPs had been left out of the census carried out by the promoter. In addition, they alleged that their socio-economic livelihood activities had not been restored to a level equal to or above the previous one as required by the international lenders’ policies for involuntary resettlement.
