Resettlement and Livelihood Restoration Planning and Implementation (IFC Performance Standard 5)is an indicator of
This indicator relates to an organisation's Resettlement and livelihood Restoration Planning and Implementation procedures and is a component of IFC Performance Standard 5 (Land Acquisition and Involuntary Resettlement). The organisation must (where involuntary resettlement cannot be avoided) conducted a census and collection of socio-economic baseline data. This will be used to determine those who will be displaced by the organisation's project and who will be eligible for compensation and available assistance. A cut-off data for applications for assistance will be established by the organisation in the absence of one mandated by host government, and the data of this communicated to all those affected in the project area. After the organisation has carried out the Resettlement Plan, a completion audit should be undertaken to ensure the objectives of IFC performance Standard 5 have been met. The applicability of Performance Standard 5 (Land Acquisition and Involuntary Resettlement) must be established during the environmental and social risks and impacts identification process. Elements of this process are outlined in Performance Standard 1. Other Performance Standards may also be applicable to a project. The Performance Standards are required for clients of IFC, but may also be applied by other organisations to manage their social and environmental management practices.

This indicator is taken from Performance Standard 5 of the International Finance Corporation's Sustainability Framework. Performance Standard 5: Land Acquisition and Involuntary Resettlement is part of IFC's wider strategy of promoting sustainable development and reducing financial risk. Performance Standards 2 through 8 establish objectives and requirements to avoid, minimise, and where residual impacts remain, to compensate/offset for risks and impacts to workers, Affected Communities, and the environment. While all relevant environmental and social risks and potential impacts should be considered as part of the assessment, Performance Standards 2 through 8 describe potential environmental and social risks and impacts that require particular attention. Where environmental or social risks and impacts are identified, the client is required to manage them through its Environmental and Social management System (ESMS) consistent with Performance Standard 1.
