The Deputy President H.E. William Ruto Launched the Sessional Paper, No. 1 of 2017 on National Land Use Policy on 12th June 2018 at KICC.
The principle objective of the National Land Use Policy (NLUP) is to provide legal, administrative, institutional and technological framework for optimal utilization and productivity of land and land related resources in a sustainable and desirable manner at National, County and Sub-county and other local levels.
KEPSA Land, Physical Planning and Housing sector board members have been advocating for its launch to address the problems of: rapid urbanization; inadequate land use planning; unsustainable agricultural and industrial production methods; poor environmental management; poor cultural practices; inappropriate ecosystem protection; and management are commonplace and require appropriate policy responses.
The launch of NLUP was key to the realization of the Big Four Agenda especially the Affordable Housing, Food Security and Manufacturing pillars.
