On 27 April 2021 President Kenyatta launched the National Land Information Management System (NLIMS);the culmination of years of digitisation of chaotic land records. It is expected to ease title transfers and safeguard public land from grabbers. It coincided with the opening of a National Geospatial Data Centre;an online depository that will contain all the land records in the country. The President said that ‘at the click of a button citizens will carry out various land transactions;drastically reducing human interaction;delays and all other inconveniences that Kenyans have had to endure in our land registries. Perennial fraud;corruption and illegal transactions will be a thing of the past.’

Mokoro is pleased to host the ’Land Rights in Africa’ site as a contribution to the land rights dialogue and related debates. This website was created in January 2000 by Robin Palmer, and was originally housed by Oxfam GB, where Robin worked as a Land Rights Adviser. A library of resources on land rights in Africa – with a particular focus on women’s land rights and on the impact of land grabbing in Africa – the portal has been well received by practitioners, researchers and policy makers, and has grown considerably over the years.
