Blurb/Shorttext:
This research seeks to understand the gendered impacts of the oil and gas sector in Kenya. This is with regard to the the impacts and opportunities women may/ or may not derive from the sector in the ever changing land use patterns as the country moves towards a more resource led economy. While the findings show that Kenya is quite progressive on the gender front with equal rights to ownership, control and use of land guaranteed in the Constitution, the country is still a masculine society. As such, women’s land rights remain limited particularly within cultural contexts. As such, for women to exercise greater agency on land and land resources, there needs to be a transformation in the way women are engaged in the extractive sector. There also needs to be a harmonization of the legal and cultural provisions on land to resolve the current clash in the provisions on women’s rights of access and use of land in Kenyan communities.
