Land & Natural Resources Past Projects
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
The Constitution of Kenya 2010 vests enormous powers and responsibilities on county governments in relation to land. Flowing from these powers and responsibilities, the county governments make important decisions concerning land and natural resources on which local communities depend almost exclusively for livelihoods. Against this backdrop, ILEG is implementing the project “Securing Land and Natural Assets for Local Communities by Building the Capacity of County Governments to Implement the Constitution and the New Land Laws”.
The project seeks to secure the interest of local communities in land and investment decisions by working with and enhancing the capacity of county government officials on the new land laws and the constitutional provisions on land. The project is funded by the Ford Foundation and is being implemented in Kericho, Siaya and Kwale counties.
ILEG relies on the generosity of donors like you to turn research into action. You can support our work by making a gift today or exploring other ways to give.
