Our Strategic Foundation
Though cognisant of the centrality and critical importance of land governance in community development, we look forward to promoting a broader and positive approach that focuses on sustainable growth and competitiveness across a number of land-related sectors.
Our Theory of Change
We premise our change theory on the major understanding that land is the most socially emotive, culturally sensitive, politically volatile and economically central resource across all communities - posing challenges in tenure security and equitable access.
Our Programme Approach
We integrate a business development model into strategic programme management while working across local communities and establish action-oriented networks that sustain linkages with government structures, civil society and other formal or informal sectors.
We are piloting the CLA model in Nakapelimoru sub county. We thank Trócaire for supporting our work.
