Sustainable development and slums upgradation

The combination of sustainable development and slums up gradation is rarely read together in one sentence. This is exactly what Kei Otsuki,a research associate at the UNU Institute for Sustainability and Peace did, highlighting the works of a number of co-culprits, which we need more of. She observes that governmental version of sustainable development is to ‘clean up’ the slum completely and relocate the residents. Umande Trust and the researchers from Kenyatta University are challenging this approach, through their  innovation of bio-centres as hubs of revitalization within current slums. Terraafont Correspondent has reached out the the researchers for further information on the innovation. Look out for updates here.
