Currently, Save Lamu efforts are focused on the environmental and social risks posed by the proposed Lamu port. The proposed project includes a massive port complex, an oil refinery, highways, railway lines and international airport, as well as a resort city. Though Save Lamu does not oppose the development of Lamu, we maintain that:

•  The Lamu community needs to be consulted before the plans materialize

•  An environmental and cultural assessment report needs to be tabled and discussed

•  Land reforms are requisite before proceeding with the port plans

•  The indigenous communities in the county must benefit from the proposed project
