Newmont Ghana Gold Ltd. Ahafo South Project - Completion Audit: Resettlement Action Plan

"This Ahafo South Resettlement and Livelihood Restoration Completion Audit Report was prepared to satisfy loan agreement conditions between Newmont Ghana Gold Limited (NGGL) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC).
The Terms of Reference for the Resettlement and Livelihood Restoration Completion Audit identified the following objectives.
1. To assess the extent to which NGGL has fulfilled its commitments to
resettlement and livelihood replacement as elaborated in the Social Action Plan (SAP) and the RAP in terms of the delivery of entitlements to project affected people.
2. To assess the level of achievement of the desired quantitative and qualitative livelihood outcomes (“weaning point”).
3. To assess whether or not the observed livelihood outcomes are likely to result in the desired livelihood impacts by comparing the results of various rounds of quantitative and qualitative socio-economic surveys of PAPs with baseline surveys.
The RAP completion audit referred to the ‘Sustainable Livelihood’ framework that had been adopted by NGGL to conceptualize and deliver their resettlement program. The Sustainable Livelihood conceives livelihoods in terms of five capitals – human, physical, natural, financial and social."
