Integrated approaches to urban development
This report documents the proceedings of an international workshop held on 7-8 December 2005 in Nairobi. The workshop was a landmark event for Practical Action's work on urban poverty. It aimed to bring together evidence of the impact of 5+ years of work in informal settlements in 5 towns in Kenya, Zimbabwe and Sudan. The projects adopted an integrated approach to urban development, taking people's livelihoods and existing capacities as a starting point, and working through building partnerships with a wide range of stakeholders in which communities can take the lead. The workshop heard presentations from Practical Action staff, partner organisations, Kenyan Government representatives and community members. The objective was to share experiences and key messages with a wide audience.
