Abstract: This e-newsletter issue argues for the prioritization of Sustainable Land management (SLM), given the dependency of the livelihoods of local communities on land and land resources. There are existing legal and legislative frameworks for citizens’ participation in decision making and development, however practice to date does not reflect effective participation of districts in central government planning, and sub-counties in district level planning. The report outlines barriers to policy development and practices as well as reparative policy reform proposals. A policy reform team should explore ways of gaining political support by working out clear linkages with the district and sub-county councils.
