Cordisons International (K) Ltd intends to implement a Wind Power project in Lamu County. The proposed sites for windfarms include: Lake Moa, Kiongwe, Pate Island and Kiangwe. In May 2013 an EIA for the project was submitted to NEMA, which Nature Kenya forwarded comments on. Nature Kenya’s main concerns were that the EIA was inadequate and certain issues in it needed to be addressed prior to its approval and also during project implementation. Some of the recommendations that were put forward included: the need to carry out detailed biodiversity surveys and set baselines; adopt avian safe wind farm design and turbine placement; and develop and implement a biodiversity monitoring framework. However the EIA was approved without incorporating these recommendations and implementation of the project has already begun. Land rights are also a potentially very conflictive issue in the Lamu region, as the large majority of the population does not have title to the lands they occupy. In 2016 the conflict escalated bwteeen two foreign firms, Cordisons and Kewind, trying to get land for wind power projects in Baharini Village in this region.
