Haki Madini Kenya (HMK) is a community centered coalition that brings together communities in and around mining areas, civil society organisations, faith based organisations and individuals engaging in the mining industry with the primary aim of promoting responsible stewardship of mining resources.

Our goal is to enhance the capacity of HMK and communities affected by the mining sector to engage effectively in national and local decision-making processes on mining issues and building a broad-based platform for collective action.

Our mission is to effectively promote community participation, multi-stakeholder engagement and responsible stewardship in the mining sector in Kenya.

Policy Advocacy

Policy Advocacy

The sector is regulated by a number of policies, legislative and institutional frameworks, which are not always coherent and in most cases do not address community interests and/or needs nor are they gender sensitive. Moreover, despite the fact that several policies and laws are currently under discussion, crucial legislative frameworks, such as national compensation, benefit sharing as well as relocation/resettlement policies are not in place. On the flip side, important constitutional, policy and legal provisions on land and environmental protection are in place but they lack enforcement and hence harm communities affected by extractive projects and their sources of livelihood.

HMK will monitor closely the development of the policy, legal and institutional framework, inform affected communities and support them in developing and voicing their positions. This advocacy work demands for action research and strategic partnerships to succeed.
