KELIN and the National Land Commission have planned to jointly hold land management stakeholder dialogue from 21st to 25th August 2023 in Kisumu and Homabay counties. Recent research has shown that Kenya’s land relations are undergoing dramatic alterations. This is because of both long-term socioeconomic change and deliberate policy choices. This, therefore, poses the need to consider socially desirable orientations of change, how change should be managed, and, most significantly, how and who should make such broad decisions. In this environment, the task of improving accountability in land and investment in governance is expected to remain a crucial domain for research and action in the coming years.
It is on this basis that the dialogues are planned between state actors and non-state actors to ensure meaningful involvement of women within decision-making spaces, including local and national policymaking; discuss and prefer review for land management regimes; stock take on lived realities on implementation of equitable land laws; and create interlinkages for stakeholders engagement to ensure the enjoyment of land rights for all.
