Stakeholder Meetings on Extractive Industries

HIPSIR brought together representatives from Civil society, county government, national government, Base Titanium and the community who are actively involved on issues of extractives in Kwale county.

Participants in Migori

The aim of the workshop was to disseminate and discuss a baseline survey that was conducted in six counties ( Turkana, Kwale, Lamu, Taita Taveta, Kitui and Migori) by HIPSIR in 2017 on Knowledge and Policy Gaps in Extractive Industries in Kenya.

The participants acknowledged the findings as a true reflection of the situation in Kwale county and conducted a contextual analysis indicating that there is a need to emphasize community participation in decision making processes such as development of the mining bill and revenue sharing as well as a need for knowledge on the technical aspects of extractive industries for the communities to better understand the process and manage their expectations. Some of the challenges that were highlighted included a lack of proper consultation by companies on development projects as part of companies corporate social responsibility, a lack of knowledge on the responsibility of the various stakeholders leading to misplaced expectations on the mining companies
