Community Fact Sheet: Handling Extractives Related Grievances in the Mining Sector - Extractives Baraza

Fact sheet summary: This Factsheet urges communities to try and resolve their grievances through locally available mechanisms, most notably ADR, liaison committees, community-based structures or TDRMs, among others, before engaging state-based judicial mechanisms such as courts.

They should also seek clarification from local administrators, civil society and other organisations operating within the mining areas to understand the appropriate avenues to channel their grievances to ensure expeditious resolution of their grievances and avert violent protests. Large-scale mining companies operating in Kenya have established internal site-level mechanisms to address community concerns. There is need for continuous engagement of communities, based on this Factsheet, on what grievances can be resolved by companies and those which should be channeled to other state-based or non-state-based mechanism.
