RECONCILE is in collaboration with A IFAD, UNHABITAT, GLTN, RCMRD, Technical University, Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries, National Irrigation Board, Mwea Irrigation Scheme and Pamoja Trust implementing a project ‘Scaling Up Participatory Enumeration and Mapping Using Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM) in Securing Grazing Land Rights, Improving Irrigation Water Use Efficiency, and Strengthening Monitoring and Evaluation Systems for Development Programmes-Kenya’. This project is funded by Global Land Network under the Land and Natural Resources Tenure Learning Initiative for East and Southern Africa (TSLI-ESA). It is focuses on improving agricultural production and productivity of communities in Bomet, Kirinyagah and Embu Counties. Its specific objectives are:
- To improve water supply (and use) efficiency to rice out-grower farmers in MIS through participatory enumeration rice out-grower farmers, map their rice paddies; develop an STDM-based database for incorporation of the farmers into the MIS database.
- To integrate geo-spatial data in the monitoring and evaluation system in SDCP, MIS and UTaNRMP.
- To strengthen security of tenure of grazing rights from encroachment and sustainable utilization of the grazing and water resources through participatory enumeration of the dairy farmers and their livestock, community resource mapping of grazing and water resources and creation of the STDM-based database.
The scope of the work include: participatory mapping and documentation, training of community enumerators as well as training project staff in GIS for purposes of monitoring, evaluating and reporting.
