Abstract:     
This paper argues for the proper recognition of land as one of the main pillars for the realisation of Vision 2030. This is does by looking at the significance of land to development from three different perspectives which touch on various sectors of the economy in Kenya ranging from development of infrastructure to anchoring the tourism sector on a sustainable basis to promotion of agricultural production to use of title to land to access credit. This paper argues that the foregoing aspects of development rely heavily on the title registration in Kenya and calls for reforms.

The three different perspectives of argument relate to the power of the state to access cheap land for development of infrastructure through the concept of compulsory acquisition while still retaining the procedural guarantees. The second perspective proceeds on the basis of the utility of the certainty of title registration regime in procuring reliability in terms of development while the third perspective proposes reform of land management practices.
