Kenya - National Commission on Human Rights to inspect extractive industry, hold stakeholder forum. 

 

 

The Economic, Social and Cultural Rights Department of the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) has been monitoring human rights compliance in the rapidly developing extractive and infrastructure industry in Kenya. Between 17 and 21 September the Commission will conduct inspections in Kitui Mui Coal Basin and Turkana Oil site. Inspections of the Lamu-Port-South Sudan Ethiopia Transport Corridor (LAPSSET) and the Oil and Gas drilling site in Lamu County are currently being undertaken. The objective of this activity is to engage and support the project implementers on their human rights responsibility in the projects. 4

The Commission has also been convening consultation forums for stakeholders aimed at initiating conversations on the extractive industry in Kenya. The next forum will take place 15-17 October in Nairobi. Its purpose is to discuss human rights due diligence for the extractive industry with a view of building capacity among civil society and streamlining their participation in extractive industry due diligence.
