Charles Otieno Konyango

National Land Commission, Kenya

To be comThe need for mainstreaming of the commons plus a comprehensive strategy to secure the commons has become a major global concern of the 21st century. This will require out of the box reform mechanisms and the participation of the communities concerned. Kenya has made credible progress towards secure tenure and land use for the commons. These include sessional paper number 8 of 2012, the Kenya Vision 2030 annex and lately the enactment of Community Land Act 2016. The broad goal of these initiatives is a) the safeguarding the state of the commons and promoting sustainable management of natural resources and b) eradication of marginalization, enhancing of community resilience, empowerment and food security of the commons communities. These will be achieved through a) community land reforms b) Demand-driven development planning and investments; c) ASAL Knowledge Management; and d) Private sector and other partnerships. The above reflects a fundamental shift in development and governance heralded by Kenya’s new Constitution and legislative reforms in land sector. The ultimate is accommodate the unique challenges and opportunities of environments, and harness the contributions of both state and non-state actors, and empower commons citizens in their search for a more just, secure and prosperous future.
