The Guidance Note on New Land for Climate Displaced Persons in Bangladesh is now available.
This Guidance Note examines the current process of distributing state-owned land in Bangladesh under the Khas system, as well as under the “Char Development and Settlement Project”. It provides a step-by-step overview of how the distribution processes work in practice and identifies a number of shortcomings in each. Concrete recommendations for how these processes could be improved are also provided. The Note seeks to show that, if such improvements were put in place, the state-owned land distribution processes in Bangladesh could provide an important solution to finding new homes and land for those displaced by the effects of climate change.
