Urbanization in Kenya is taking place at unprecedented rates. According to estimates, from 2000 to 2015 the urban population in Kenya will have almost doubled from 6,217,000 to 11,878,000. As the urban population is growing, the numbers of urban poor living in slums are also increasing: In Nairobi, half of the city’s population is said to live in over 100 slum settlements. These settlements are often characterized by high population density, lack of basic infrastructure and services and crime. Further, since they do not have security of tenure, many slum residents have experienced evictions and demolitions.
