Community land rights in Kenya: a summary of 2020 analyses

This summary highlights Kenya-specific findings of three RRI studies conducted in 2020 on: The estimated area of land and territories where the rights of Indigenous Peoples, local communities and Afro-descendants have not been recognized. The identification of opportunities for investments in securing collective tenure rights in the forest areas of low – and middle- income countries. The exploration of rights-based interventions in conserving biological and cultural diversity. This document explains what the findings of these three studies mean for Kenya, and aims to equip local communities and civil society organizations (CSOs) with data to advance their advocacy work to influence future reforms and help the government, donors, private sector actors, and conservationists make informed decisions.
