kenya land alliance download :Memorandum On Continued Engagement With The Ministry Of Lands On Land Reforms Presented To: The Ministry Of Lands. The approval by the public of the Constitution at the referendum on August 4, 2010 and its promulgation on August 27, 2010 heralded a new dawn of governance in Kenya. Through its broad provisions, it is expected that it will spur social and economic development and secure the land rights of all Kenyans, by among others guaranteeing them ownership, control and access to natural resources. It is also expected to ensure their participation in decision-making processes. Significantly, it is also expected to introduce governance structures that are projected to improve Kenya‟s democracy. The many references to land, natural resources and environment within the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 and the provisions carefully crafted to deal with these issues are clearly indicative of the very high value that Kenya attaches on the question of land and associated resources. 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.
