HIPSIR Baseline Survey on Capacity and Knowledge Gaps in Extractive Industries in Kenya
Hekima Institute of Peace Studies and International Relations (HIPSIR) is conducting a baseline survey on the existing capacity and knowledge gaps at the county levels (Turkana, Kwale, Kitui, Lamu, Migori and Taita Taveta) in addressing the diverse issues of concern in extractive industries. The survey interrogates community members and leaders, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), community based organisations (CBOs), county government officials and academic institutions. The outcomes of the survey would be important in identifying the gaps in knowledge, policy formulation and implementation as well as research and advocacy activities. HIPSIR hopes to use the information to launch a specialized Chartered Mediators Training that will assist communities in negotiating for their rights, understanding the different issues around extractive industries and ensuring that they enjoy the benefits accrued from the industry. The survey runs between 1st June – 1st October 2017.
