  1. Sessional Paper No. 8 of 2012 on National Policy for the Sustainable Development of Northern Kenya and other Arid LandsSessional Paper No. 8 of 2012 on National Policy for the Sustainable Development of Northern Kenya and other Arid Lands - Ministry of State for Development of Northern Kenya and Other Arid Lands

    The title of this policy is a deliberate echo of the influential Sessional Paper No. 10 of 1965, which perpetuated the biased distribution of public investment established under colonial rule. Resources were directed towards the so-called ‘high potential’ areas of crop production, overlooking the wealth of lowland livestock-based economies and creating the deep inequalities in human development which we see in Kenya today.

    National development planning must accommodate the diversity that is Kenya. Each production system has its unique potential and each community their distinct historical experience. Local and national aspirations and concerns are indivisible. Poverty, inequality and insecurity in any one part of our country diminish us all.

    Nearly fifty years after our Independence, inequality between the north and the rest of Kenya persists. Uneven human development undermines national cohesion and is one of the biggest obstacles to Kenya achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Equal treatment on an unequal base will simply perpetuate this inequality.

    Ending Drought Emergencies: Common Programme Framework

    Drought is the single most damaging natural hazard in Kenya, destroying lives and livelihoods and undermining national development. These impacts are likely to worsen with climate change. However, many of these costs could be avoided or significantly mitigated by reducing people’s exposure and vulnerability to risk. This requires that adequate, cost-effective and appropriate measures are taken in advance of drought so that people’s capacity to anticipate and withstand it is strengthened.

    The Constitution places on the state obligations to protect the vulnerable and progressively realise a portfolio of rights, including the right to be free from hunger. Government policy is that droughts should not become disasters. The Government has therefore committed itself to ending drought emergencies in Kenya by 2022. This commitment is clearly spelt out in the Second Medium Term Plan (MTP) for the Vision 2030, in which Ending Drought Emergencies (EDE) is recognised as one of the key foundations for national development.
