Lands, Energy, and Urban Development
Marsabit County occupies about16 percent of Kenya’s total land mass covering an area of 75,691 square kilometers, making it inarguably the largest and most expansive County in Kenya. Most of this land falls under arid and semi-arid climatic conditions and thus it has remained virgin for many years and it’s communally owned.
Since the year 2013 the department of Energy, Land, and Housing and Urban Development has been working hard to facilitate sustainable land use through a holistic land policy for the betterment of life of residents in Marsabit County. This department aims to ensure that 75% of the residents have got access to land, affordable housing, and a cheap and quality energy source by the year 2020.
On land and housing, this department is actively encouraging private ownership of land in order to attract investors through modern technology registration. This docket has further reviewed the county land management policy, Physical planning, Land transaction, Survey and mapping, Land adjudication and Settlement matters, and rural settlement planning in order to enhance cohesion among communities.
