In Nairobi, Residents Redesign Public Spaces to Build Flood Resilience
Kounkuey Design Initiative

In Kibera, for many reasons, homes are extremely susceptible to flooding - over 50% of Kibera’s households flooded in 2015, and climate change is exacerbating Nairobi’s rainy seasons. This means more and more of Nairobi's most vulnerable residents will experience potentially devastating floods. To tackle this issue, The Kibera Public Space Project aims to co-develop solutions for flooding and other challenges in the informal settlement by building a network of community-designed and managed public spaces that reduce flood risk, provide access to core services and create new income-generating opportunities.
