Kenya Land Alliance | Land Portal

The Kenya Land Alliance (KLA) is a not-for-profit and non-partisan umbrella network of Civil Society Organisations and Individuals committed to effective advocacy for the reform of policies and laws governing land in Kenya. KLA was founded in 1999 and registered as a Trust in 2001. The initiative to create an institutional framework for land laws and policy advocacy in Kenya was necessitated by the realization that the policy, legal and institutional framework created in 1950’s had become inadequate due to many changes in the social, political, economic and cultural fronts that had occurred in the country over the years.

The increased population has resulted in intense competition for access to land and natural resources. In addition, changes in the global environment brought about by globalization have combined to create a reality that is significantly different from the one existing when the

current framework was created in the 1950s. It is on this premise that KLA has been in the forefront in efforts towards effective advocacy for land laws and policy reforms in Kenya, as recently witnessed in the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the Land Law System of

Kenya and the Constitution of Kenya Review Commission. Advocating for the formulation and implementation of a National Land Policy and review of land laws.
