Many large-scale projects trigger the requirement to resettle households, and while there is plentiful experience in the planning of resettlement, there is considerably less experience in the successful delivery of a resettlement project which sustainably meets the goals of improved standards of living and restored livelihoods. This training course draws on global experience across a range of industries to identify the primary challenges faced when seeking to meet these objectives, how to work with affected households to overcome these challenges, and how to assess whether these outcomes have been achieved post resettlement. It draws heavily upon the more than 40 years combined experience of the two trainers and provides opportunities for participants to share the challenges they are experiencing in a collaborative environment to draw lessons from the experience held within the room.  While the trainers have much to share, they also see their role as facilitators of a conversation and nurturers of a network of resettlement specialists that will endure beyond the course.

  • "I was fortunate to attend Liz and Angela‚Äôs resettlement planning course at the 2019 IAIA Brisbane. It was one of the best training courses I have participated in and directly relevant to my work. Liz and Angela expertly delivered the content in an engaging way. They pulled in multiple real life examples from projects they have worked on around the world to demonstrate their points. They were also able to deep dive on specific areas that the group were most interested in and facilitate effective group conversations that enhanced understanding of resettlement issues in different project contexts. Highly recommend!"
