With the discovery of oil in Turkana County of Kenya, there has been a rush to develop the exploitation of this resource. Since there has been no oil in Kenya, there have been no laws to govern this new activity. FoLT has been at the forefront of advocating for due dilligence in oil exploration in order to maintain the environmental integrity of the areas where oil has been found.
FoLT has been training the county government on environmental issues that arise from oil exploration with a view to help them take precautions and to prepare them to mitigate should these issues arise.
