Key Result Areas


The Strategic Plan has identified a framework that is aligned to the mandate of the

Commission, which is in line with the Government development agenda including

the Kenya Vision 2030, the Medium-Term Plan, the Big Four Agenda, the Africa

Agenda 2063 as well as the Sustainable Development Goals. The framework contains

five (5) Key Result Areas (KRAs) which will be pursued in the next five years, namely:

Key Result Area 1: Management and administration of public land

Key Result Area 2: Use of land and security of land rights

Key Result Area 3: Revenue generation from land and land-based resources

Key Result Area 4: Land dispute resolution and conflict management

Key Result Area 5: Institutional strengthening

Each of the Key Result Area is linked to its respective strategic objectives, strategies,

and corresponding outcomes (Table 1). To realize the outcomes, each strategy

will be implemented through various activities which are clearly linked to Key

Performance Indicators (KPIs), targets and corresponding resource requirements

spread out across the Plan period (Appendix 1).
