Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) will host a luncheon on Wednesday November 18, 2015 to launch a publication titled “Local Communities in Kenya’s Extractives sector: From Paternalism to Partnership”. The book seeks to: comprehensively inform communities about EIs in general; make them aware of the relevant EI policies, legal and institutional frameworks; help them learn from the experiences of other EI countries in order to model alternatives; embolden communities to self-organise and to network in order to protect their livelihoods and cultures; as well as present tools and knowledge that adequately empowers them to participate in decision making processes that result in favourable outcomes for communities.
The launch will be held from 12.45 p.m. to 2.45 p.m. at Jubilee hall, Desmond Tutu Conference Center situated at the All Africa Conference of Churches Compound (AACC), along Waiyaki way. Please RSVP: Katindi Sivi-Njonjo at email@example.com and Augustine Muthiga at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday for planning purposes.
The luncheon is hosted within an on-going national dialogue on the Africa Mining Vision (AMV) hosted by Diakonia’s Kenya Country Office.
