[PDF] Forgotten in the Scramble for Lamu: A Position Paper in the Case of the Aweer and The Fisherfolk [Kenya]
This position paper seeks to establish international legal and policy framework for best standards and practice in the implementation of the LAPSSET Project. It raises concerns on the Project being administered in a manner that will relegate host communities further into the periphery of poverty and invisibility and offers recommendations on how to urgently mitigate against this adverse yet imminent outcome. KHRC hopes that the recommendations of this position will be applied towards ensuring that the LAPSSET Project results in inclusive growth of the Lamu community and sustainable development. To this end, this publication offers recommendations on how the various stakeholders may engage towards achieving the state of respect for human rights and environmental justice in implementing colossal development projects.
