Report: seminar Kenya land reform – from paper to practice

On Tuesday 9 October 2012, LANDac together with ActionAid and the African Studies Center organised the seminar Kenya Land Reform: From Paper to Practice. Will Kenya’s new land bills safeguard people’s land rights and food security?

Kenyan ActionAid activist David Barissa shed his light on the new land legislation in the country, followed by reflections by Marcel Rutten (ASC) and Caroline Archambault (UU), and a general discussion.

The report of this event is available here. 

For more information on land grab in Kenya and its implications for smallholder farmers, an interesting study on the Tana River Delta was conducted by the Eastern Africa Farmers Federation (EAFF) in 2010: ‘Land Grab in Kenya – Implications for Small-holder farmers’:
