The work on internal displacement and forced evictions commenced in the year 2003 but on small scale. This programme has been sustained through receiving and processing of complaints from individuals, groups, established institutional and media reports. In response, KNCHR works with relevant national and county governance structures among them ministries, departments, and constitutional commissions. Others include development partners, international and regional actors, civil society, humanitarian sector and directly or indirectly affected communities. KNCHR also undertakes elaborate documentation and dissemination of its findings to targeted actors towards seeking accountability and protection for human rights.
Documentation has been made possible through administering and analysing of displacement monitoring tools (link to monitoring tools) that captures at least all Internally Displacement Persons (IDPs) protection needs . On forced evictions, the commission has been and will continue to monitor and document such cases in ensuring that those carrying out evictions adhere to the required guidelines (link to eviction guidelines). KNCHR also has an online IDP monitoring website where publications and relevant displacement information can be accessed .
In partnership with relevant actors under the auspice of the National Protection on Internal Displacement (link to PWGID), KNCHR undertakes advocacy and targeted sensitization on protection of human rights of displaced persons.
