Environment, Democracy & Justice Past Projects

Building and raising an army of public interest lawyers in East Africa.

Most Kenyans, especially the majority poor rely almost exclusively on land and natural resources,  such as forests, water, wildlife, fisheries, dry lands, wetlands and minerals – for sustenance. Apart from Agriculture which sustains over 80% of Kenyans, other livelihood activities like pastoralism, fishing, tourism and processing natural resources for sale are entirely dependent on natural resources

Project Overview:

This project, implemented in partnership with the US-based Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide (ELAW) involves a series of seminars to support lawyers from Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania to sustain a dialogue and strategize on how best to use law to respond to myriad challenges facing local communities in the wake of a fast-emerging extractive industry, huge land deals and wanton destruction of natural resources in the region.
