"Renewable Energy Projects and the Rights of Marginalised/Indigenous Communities in Kenya"

For this reason, Kenya has scaled up its pursuit of investments in renewable energy, primarily geothermal and wind energy projects.

 But will these renewable energy projects ensure the attainment of economic, social and cultural rights for indigenous peoples in Kenya, as guaranteed and provided by the Inter-national Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights 1966,the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights 1986,the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and Kenya’s own Constitution?

To answer this question, this report will look at how business enterprises in the renewable energy sector are promoting and respecting the human rights of indigenous peoples in their project areas.
