  • Organisation

    The Drylands Learning and Capacity Building Initiative (DLCI) for Improved Policy and Practice in the Horn of Africa (DLCI) is an independent non-profit organisation registered in Kenya. DLCI promotes learning and advocacy on dry land issues throughout East Africa. In recent years it has focused on Kenya particularly the counties of Turkana, Isiolo and Marsabit. It started operating in 2014, having grown out of the Regional Learning and Advocacy Program for vulnerable dryland communities (REGLAP) which had been set up in 2008 as a consortium project to promote the resilience of dryland communities through policy and practice change in the Horn of Africa.

    From 2014-2015, DLCI was supported by ECHO and the Swiss Development Corporation (SDC) to increase the use by key stakeholders of evidence based good practice in their resilience policies and strategies. DLCI was funded from July to December 2016 by USAID/AHADI and the Christensen Fund to promote information provision on critical policy and practice issues to remote communities in Turkana, Marsabit and Isiolo counties. Following an initial assessment, it was decided to disseminate information on the new Community Land Act and requirements for public participation in county budgeting and planning.

    • Project

      In 2016, the Drylands Learning and Capacity Building Initiative (DLCI) carried out an extensive process of consultations with remote and marginalised communities in Turkana, Isiolo and Marsabit to identify key concerns and issues around community land law and community benefits as well as participation of marginalised communities in policy and planning consultations.

      In the Voice project DLCI continues with community consultations in these counties, to represent their voices and address their concerns in the community land registration regulations and support communities to register their land that will mitigate conflict and ensure strong sustainable management in future. DLCI also lobbies and raises awareness with government agencies to promote genuine community participation in policy and planning processes and improve the relationship and trust between government and communities in the new administration. DLCI promotes access to critical government policies and strategies and evidence based analysis by developing a policy portal on its website and developing policy syntheses and accessible communication materials on critical issues.
