|Why the Need for Environment and Land Law Reports?
• Traditionally, land ownership and utilization has been a central feature of Kenya’s cultural, social and economic evolution. Because Kenya’s economy is largely agricultural, land is a very important component of the means of production and issues relating to land ownership and its concomitant rights comprise a large part of the litigation that is carried out in the Kenyan courts.
• Serious environmental degradation in Kenya and the mismanagement of natural resources has brought about an acute need for strict environmental monitoring and governance. There is need to increase knowledge and awareness on land and environmental issues in order to assist in the formulation and administration of an effective governance regime and in the evolution of an indigenous land and environment policy framework.
