It could be interesting to see how wageni are analysing slum upgrading efforts. If you have more direct life experience, go and chime in loudly!

Lessons for building community resilience from Kibera
2pm-4pm・ Tuesday 13 February 2018
Rift Valley Institute・Laikipia Road・Kileleshwa・Nairobi
On 13 February 2018, the Rift Valley Forum will host a panel to discuss the findings of a research by International Alert and Kounkuey Design Initiative on the impacts of the slum-upgrading projects on addressing risks and building resilience in Kibera. The research, which is based on extensive focus group discussions and key informant interviews, analyses the different risks related to conflict, crime, insecurity and flooding in Kibera.
The study was conducted under the Urban Africa Risk and Knowledge (Urban ARK) programme funded by UK ESRC and DFID. Urban ARK is global research, policy and capacity building programme that aims to reduce disaster risk in urban sub-Saharan Africa by breaking cycles of risk accumulation.
