STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY LAND RIGHTS

The Project’s primary objective is to provide technical legal support to strengthen community land and resource rights and then rigorously test the extent to which this mitigates and resolves local conflict. Kenya Land Alliance (KLA) with partners such as Oxfam and Namati together will support communities gain legal protection for their community lands and through an action research approach will carefully track how this process affects local conflict and gender dynamics.
