The handbook is divided into five parts:

  • Part 1 The business case for addressing project-induced in-migration.
  • Part 2 The project-induced in-migration phenomenon, first considering the dynamics of project-induced in-migration and then discussing its potential environmental and social impacts. A final section considers the unique aspects of in-migration in relation to artisanal and small-scale mining, resettlement, indigenous peoples, areas of high biodiversity value and cultural heritage.
  • Part 3 The assessment of the probability of project-induced in-migration and the risks that such in-migration poses to a project. Beginning with basic tools to assess the probability of and the risks posed by in-migration, this part of the document identifies the requirements for a situation analysis as a basis for developing a project-specific influx-management strategy and plan.
  • Part 4 Management approaches. A comprehensive description of potential management approaches including approaches to reducing in-migration, managing its footprint, enhancing its positive impacts, and preventing and mitigating its negative impacts. Interventions supporting each of these approaches are described.
  • Part 5 The development of influx management strategies and their integration into the project.
