Environment, Democracy & Justice Past Projects

Green Justice.

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:

Achieving sustainable development and safeguarding the environmental rights and obligations created by Kenya’s 2010 Constitution requires a strong environmental jurisprudence and access to environment-related justice. This project titled “Greening Justice: Judicial Training on Land and Environment Matters in Kenya” seeks to improve the capacity of the judiciary to make sound judicial decisions on matters relating to land, environment and natural resources. It involves research on legal and policy issues relating to land and environment; trainings and colloquia for judges and judicial officers. The project is supported by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC).
