Despite the legal framework created by multiple national and international commitments, the business actors, investors and government entities behind the large-scale renewable energy projects in Northern Kenya have not met their human rights obligations toward indigenous communities. To address these challenges, this project capitalizes on long-standing experience and the capacity of IMPACT and other project partners within the field of research, dialogue and capacity building of rights holders and local civil society, implementing activities to empower affected indigenous communities and civil society organizations while creating space for dialogue with duty bearers in order to increase corporate and government accountability to human rights.

This will in the long run contribute to a just energy transition to low carbon production in Kenya, thus supporting the country´s climate goals, through measures which actively empower indigenous communities and CSOs to claim their rights while enabling businesses, investors and government to meet their human rights obligations
