The figures of public resources estimated to have been channeled into private pockets are so high one hopes, obviously against hope, that they would turn out to be typographical errors. The figures of public resources estimated to have been channeled into private pockets are so high one hopes, obviously against hope, that they would turn out to be typographical errors.

National Conference on Emerging Land Issues in Kenyan Agriculture and their Implications for Food Policy and Institutional Reforms
For a long time sub-Saharan Africa has been considered to have abundant and underutilized land than any other continent.

The adoption of the Sessional Paper No. 3 of 2009 on National Land Policy attests to the same. And this is with very good reason. Land is indeed a critical resource for economic growth, social development, and poverty reduction. Thus, the terms on which land is held, used and transferred have important consequences for economic growth, the distribution of wealth, social cohesion and reduction of poverty.
