Judiciary Guide on Extractives in Kenya - Extractives Baraza

The process towards the development of this Guide commenced with a Listening Project on “Tracing and Documenting Grievances and Grievance Handling Mechanisms in the Oil and Gas Sector in Kenya: Experiences from Turkana County” conducted by the Extractives Baraza.

The Project, conducted between June and August 2018 in the Lokichar Basin of Turkana East and South, sought to establish, through qualitative field study, local perceptions and understanding of oil related grievances and preferred grievance-handling mechanisms ( judicial and/or non-judicial). This was an expansion of the Extractives Baraza’s Pilot Listening Project conducted in April 2017 in Mui Basin, a coal rich region in Kitui County.

The study applied participatory research methods involving the use of interviews, observation, community meetings, grievance identification and visioning testimonials, timeline and event analysis, and engagement with state authorities, civil society actors and the investor. A total of 362 participants participated in the Project-largely comprising those closest to the oil resource and most impacted by the day-today activities of the oil operations.

Thereafter, the Extractives Baraza, in partnership with the Judiciary Training Institute (JTI) and International Development Law Organization (IDLO) conducted a two-part training workshop for judges and legal researchers, based on the findings of the Listening Project, to strengthen their capacity regarding key legal aspects in the extractives sector, including the interface between different dispute resolution avenues within the sector. 21 judges and 25 legal researchers drawn from the following divisions of the High Court: Judicial Review Division; Environment and Land Court (ELC); and the Family Division attended the workshop.
