RECONCILE in partnership with Food and Agriculture of the United Nation (FAO) and the Land Sector Non-state actors executed advocacy activities to enhance land reforms from 2020 to 2021. This was through the FAO – Land Governance Programme ‘Support to the Attainment of Vision 2030 through Devolved Land Reforms in Community Lands of Kenya’ with financial support from European Union (EU). The implementation took place at two levels, national and county levels strengthening engagements of non-state actors in the land reform agenda. Specific objective is to boost targeted and evidence-based multi-stakeholders’ engagement for enhanced land laws implementation to secure land rights as the country implements vision 2030. The implementation of the activities is undertaken in coordination with the Coordinating Council that has RECONCILE as the Secretary while members are KLA, Kituo Cha Sheria, LDGI, GROOTS Kenya, KHRC, Action Aid, Pamoja Trust, Haki Jamii, KWCA and FIDA. The project is also informed by an outcome on An Effective multi-stakeholder’ engagement with Land Laws by Land Sector Non-State Actors.
