Compulsory Displacement 

Currently, millions of people are displaced from their places of living and work, due to construction of infrastructure works, mining-energy projects, urban interventions, management of natural resources, socio-natural disasters or armed conflicts. People facing this type of displacement may be plunged into poverty and hopelessness if resettlement plans are not developed to support them in rebuilding their lives.

Displacement due to the effects of climate change is going to be one of the greatest challenges in the XXI Century, mainly in developing countries, and we must be prepared to address it. According to UNHCR (2015) weather-related disasters have resulted .in significant levels of population displacement worldwide.  A global average of at least 22.5 million people were displaced each year from 2008 to 2014, and disaster displacement since the 1970s is on the rise (IDMC 2015). Between 2008 and 2014, close to 175 million people who live in developing countries were displaced by disasters, accounting for 95 per cent of the global total (IDMC 2015) (UNHCR,2015). 

 

Social Impact Assessment

Lack of proper management of socioeconomic impacts in the regions where projects are developed has had adverse consequences for communities living in their area of influence. It has led to strong opposition from communities to any kid of project and conflicts are arising in different countries just for announcing a project. An adequate assessment and management of these impacts may facilitate a harmonious articulation of the projects with the regions they are located, benefit communities and contribute to local sustainable development.
