Nairobi/Ruiru Research and Education Pilot Site
Our work is directed towards the establishment of integrated and inclusive metropolitan planning that will result in the creation of sustainable and equitable urban development. We co-produce knowledge with local academic partners to ensure that the tools of research and education are relevant, available, and accessible to community members, local governments, policy makers, and professionals, enabling them to effectively address the challenges of rapid urbanization facing their communities. We seek to bring together local communities with faculty and students from Kenya, the United States and other parts of the world to collaboratively meet these challenges. Through this research and educational focus, we facilitate crucial engagement with government, private industry, NGOs and other groups of importance to local and regional planning efforts.
