Kenya is aggressively investing in her infrastructure in view of becoming a middle-income country by 2030.  The Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) corridor is one of the many flagship projects under Vision 2030 that are expected to make the country globally competitive to drive a 10 percent annual economic growth rate up to 2030.  Using a qualitative research design, this study examined how the LAPSSET corridor and its ancillary megaprojects will impact the social, economic, cultural, environmental and human rights aspects of communities living around the projects in Isiolo, Marsabit, Samburu and Laikipia counties.
