The Department of Lands in the Turkana County conducted a community entry meeting in Nalapatui and Esikiriat, Kakuma, Turkana West, to discuss land regularization.

Additionally, they collaborated with World Vision and the Korea International Agency for cooperation (KOICA) to integrate drought resilience programs.

Peter Akono, the County Executive for Lands, informed the community about the County Government’s public sensitization efforts to educate Turkana residents on land regularization.

This initiative aims to facilitate registration and, subsequently, the issuance of title deeds as valid land ownership documents.

Akono emphasized the Governor’s Administration’s commitment to incorporating climate-smart land use patterns into public engagement meetings.

This led to a partnership with World Vision Kenya (WVK) and KOICA to support Natural Resource Management practices, including pasture reseeding and grass plantations in Nalapatui and Esikiriat.

The CECM urged residents to allow the organizations to assist with grass plantation projects through the Kakuma Drought Response Project (KDRP).

He expressed the government’s openness to additional partners promoting productive land use for the benefit of both host and refugee communities in Turkana West.

Anthony Oyugi from WVK highlighted the inclusive approach of the KDRS project, catering to both host and refugee communities in Natural Resource Management.

He emphasized the use of a climate-smart approach in Esikiriat and Nalapatui grass plantations to ensure long-term sustainability in land use patterns.

Oyugi reported that WVK had implemented a water project providing 10,000 liters of water to the area. He encouraged residents to utilize this water for small-scale agriculture, enhancing food security at the household level.
