This concept paper provides a road map for preparing a National Land Use Policy for the Republic of Kenya. The need for a National Land Use Policy cannot be over emphasized. Two important Government policy documents recognize and emphasize the importance of a National Land Use Policy in guiding the management and use of land in the country. These are the National Land policy, Sessional Paper No. 3 of 2009 and the Kenya Vision 2030.
The paper identifies salient issues to be addressed; suggests a conceptual framework to inform the process; presents thematic policy concerns; gives a methodology and suggests a work plan to actualize the process.
