CURI hosts Conference on Prospects for Innovative, Resilient & Inclusive Urban Development

University of Nairobi, through the Centre for Urban Research and Innovations (CURI) and its partners is hosting a 2-day conference on the theme of Prospects for innovative, Resilient and Inclusive Urban Development. The conference focuses on three main areas 1) Governance and Inclusive Urban Development; 2) Devolution and Innovative, Resilience and Inclusive urban development; and 3) Projects, Programs and Research towards Innovative and Inclusive Urban Development.


“Cities are not just Africa’s future: they are its present. Unless collective action is taken now to transform cities like Nairobi into the drivers of economic development and sources of opportunity that they are supposed to be, they will become a tinderbox of perpetual inequality”.1 This warning from Kennedy Odede, head of a community organisation in Kibera, Nairobi’s largest informal settlement, serves as an emphatic reminder of the realities of urban growth in Africa.

An Urban Inequality Issue; Case of the Huruma building collapse disaster

In an urban context, such as is the city of Nairobi, living spaces are designed to perform the function as areas of relaxation, comfort, safety and security from natural and man-made urban hazards that endanger physical, social, psychological and emotional wellbeing of people. Cases of collapsed residential buildings in the city of Nairobi have undermined the safety and security functions of residential buildings, where most urban residential buildings have been declared potential scenes of building collapse disasters, instead of living spaces that preserve human lives and offer safety to urban residents.
