Environmental and Social Considerations for Resettlement

It is first necessary to acquire land to construct expressways. Hanshin Expressway (HEX) usually utilizes existing roads, waterways, rivers and other publicly owned properties to avoid displacement of residents and businesses. When no alternatives are available, however, resettlement may sometimes be inevitable. Resettlement incurs loss of land, housing, assets, livelihoods, and income resources.
HEX has many practical experiences in compensation for relevant stakeholders of urban expressway projects that have been implemented over 50 years. By taking advantage of our abundant experience, HEX contributed on JICA Technical Cooperation Project. As the results, short-term experts were dispatched to Cambodia. The outline of the results is as follows.
