A Framework to guide the government in addressing land management issues in a sustainable manner across all sectors has been developed.

The Kenya Strategic Investment Framework (KSIF) for Sustainable Land Management (SLM) is a tool that has identified hotspots, policy gaps and investment priorities for scaling up sustainable land management. It has also outlined clear roles for key sectors and stakeholders to guide and focus interventions which will curb land degradation and its effects in various parts of the country.

The PS for Environment, Charles Sunkuli led discussions with stakeholders to enrich the proposed KSIF for SLM in Kenya and deliberate on the proposed coordination mechanism. Stakeholders also discussed the most appropriate ways to operationalize the framework and mainstream the same across sectors.

SLM has in recent years been a focus of the Government and numerous development partners, due to its potential to minimize degradation, rehabilitate degraded lands and increase food production.

Land degradation is increasing in severity and extent in many areas of the country, which also happen to be the most productive.

The State Department of Environment through the KAPSLMP project component is currently fine tuning the KSIF.
