The impoverishment commonly associated with development-induced displacement often occurs because of government and development agencies’ reliance on compensation as a remedy for resettlement. This study focuses on the inadequacy of compensation use in development-induced forced displacement and resettlement by analysing 50 recent development projects that involved forced displacement. The aim is for increased understanding leading to action to lessen the impoverishing effects of development-induced displacement.
