CCMT will be launching a research paper that seeks to address challenges to relocation and compensation of people displaced by development projects in Zimbabwe on the 5th of June at Bronte Hotel, Harare.
Issues of displacements of people especially in rural areas is a threatening issue to national peace as it causes conflicts among authorities who are pursuing development and the affected community members. Centre for Conflict Management and Transformation’s (CCMT) mandate is to promote peace and manage conflict by means of dialogue among conflicting parties.
The research paper, dubbed “Challenges to Relocation and Compensation of Rural communities displaced by development projects in Zimbabwe” seeks to address concerns of relocating people and how to compensate them so that they suffer not to development advancements
Advancing towards developing the nation, CCMT is working to push for development in rural areas in Zimbabwe so that each community benefits from projects of development. Usually people are relocated to pave way for mining, agriculture, dam construction, and many other infrastructural developments and commonly people do not get any compensation and that usually causes uproars and hinders development progress.
The launch of the land management related research paper will be facilitated by CCMT, the co-authors of the paper.
