    Land is a critical resource in Kenya, having economic, social, political,
    environmental and cultural significance. Kenya’s population continues to rely
    on land for both subsistence and economic activities. In fact, the increase
    of the population from about 20 million people in the 1960s to about 40
    million currently, has put enormous pressure on land. Only a third of Kenya’s
    land is arable while the rest is arid and semi-arid. With most Kenyans still
    living off the land, contestations over access to, control over and ownership

    This project thesis presents a conceptual framework for a land information system that
    would result in increased revenue collection from the land rent section of the Department
    of Lands, Ministry of Lands and Settlement. It point out the need for a comprehensive
    database containing both physical and socio-economic data supported by powerful
    analytical capabilities as the basis for effective decision making on land rent for tax
    revenue collection.
    The Government has admittedly a lot of untapped revenue in the form of unrevised land

    This paper looks at issues of gender and tenure in African customary law. It argues that under all systems of law in many African countries, ownership of land and associated resources is very much anchored in patriarchy. It decries the failure to isolate positive aspects of customary law and the preponderance of women-unfriendly customary law which influences statutory and other forms of law. Part II of the paper provides the conceptual and theoretical premises of the paper. It looks at patriarchy, gender and law and their impact on tenure relations emphasising the male dominance.

    The ability of an organization to implement strategy successfully is important. While it is
    the desire of every organisation to keep abreast with changing times and demands in the

    The study aimed to answer two research questions: what were the challenges of strategy
