    The elements of Land Administration in Kenya are very fragmented and independently operated
    within the Ministry of Lands. During institutional reform there is opportunity to provide a much
    more integrated Land Administration service to the citizens, especially at the district level
    through the formation of ‘one-stop-shops’, through the integration and rationalization of the
    existing land administration and land rights delivery systems.

    database. However the majority of the records are in paper form.

    In Kenya and the sub-Saharan Africa generally, there have been little systematic discussions
    on the post-colonial struggles over control and ownership of land. Studies ignore that the "land

    changes underway in the country?"

    employment. Majority of the farmers in Kenya are smallholder farmers possessing less than 3
    acres of land. The agricultural sector in Kenya has been facing several challenges among them
    declining yields. While the decline in yields could be associated with several other factors, it
    could also be as a result of the effect of insecure land tenure systems which are little understood.

    Poverty is a critical problem in many parts of the world, especially in the developing countries. This has necessitated policy makers to have a keen interest in seeking ways of improving livelihoods and alleviating poverty. Agriculture remains a key sector for spurring growth, overcoming poverty, and creating employment opportunities in sub-Saharan Africa. However, in areas where land acreage is small, it has become difficult to carry out any profitable agricultural production as a means of livelihood sustenance.
