Kenya: Submission to the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

, Index number: AFR 32/3413/2016

This submission focuses on the right to adequate housing, including the prohibition on forced evictions. In particular, Amnesty International is concerned about the failure of the government of Kenya to comply with its obligations to refrain from and prevent forced evictions, and the failure to ensure equal access to water and sanitation to people living in slums and informal settlements which has a particularly negative impact on women and girls.
