City of Nairobi Environment Outlook
A 'City Development Strategy using a bottom-up approach' to guide the planning of Nairobi is urgently needed to ensure that the Kenyan capital develops on an environmentally-friendly and sustainable path. The central recommendation is made in a landmark draft report issued today. It has been compiled by the Nairobi City Council in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Centre for Human Settlements (UN-HABITAT). The City of Nairobi Environment Outlook provides the first comprehensive snapshot of the state of Nairobi at the turn of the century. It is also accompanied by a series of wide-ranging recommendations on how to boost the quality of urban life for the Kenyan capital's close to three million residents.
