National Spatial Plan

The National Spatial Plan and National Land Use Policy provide the framework and vision that guide the long-term spatial development of Kenya. The plan addresses uncoordinated human settlements, disjointed sectoral policies, urban and rural development, economic development disparities, unsustainable use of the natural environment, and inefficient transport and infrastructure.

Geo-referencing of land parcel boundaries

Geo-referencing all land parcels in the nation is critical to the creation of a national land register necessary for efficient and effective land management and governance. As envisaged in the Land Registration Act 2012, cadastral plans and maps are the registrable documents for conferring of land rights. The implementation of geo-referencing will eliminate the overlap of land parcels and ensure the sanctity of the land title. This will eliminate land disputes and enhance the ease of doing business.

Through the development of geospatial data, the Ministry will continue modernising the coordinate system to conform to the Kenya Geodetic Reference Frame (KENREF) in line with the United Nations Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM).
