    Kenya’s Vision 2030 aims at transforming the country into a newly industrialized middle income country

    In Kenya, insecure land tenure and inequitable access to land and natural resources have contributed to conflict and violence, which has in return exacerbated food insecurity.

Competition is as well growing over water, especially over groundwater, which is scarce in Kenya.

    Public land is a resource that should be effectively managed in the public’s best interest in line with provisions of the Constitutions of Kenya and the Land Act.
