Call for Consultancy

Consultancy call for video documentation on upscaling our STDM work in Nairobi and Mombasa to promote integrated and sustainable urban land use.

The expansion of human settlements in recent times and more so urban areas has often been described as some form of crisis. The problem is further magnified by inability of dominant tools of planning and land regulation to guide and foster inclusive urban governance. Kenya, like most developing countries, has faced rapid growth of cities and urban areas over the years: this has been accompanied by immense increase in the number of urban inhabitants resulting in proliferation of informal settlements. Such growth without accompanying and commensurate investments in infrastructure and services to support this population has resulted into complexities in the urban space that are increasingly difficult to address through traditional and conventional planning approaches.
