The need for participatory land use planning in building resilience of ASAL communities in Kenya

April 2015
International Land Coalition and DLCI

Looks at land use planning challenges in the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) of Kenya – lack of coherent vision, disconnect between political and technical planning processes, urgent needs of ASALs not being considered, lack of investment, National Land Commission under-resourced, conflicts over land use, lack of tenure security. Need to enact the Community Land Bill and for refocussing as a bottom up and participatory approach.
