Climate resilient development of urban areas need to take into account current and future climate risks and be inclusive as far as planning is concerned.
The speed of urbanization in Africa is increasing and remains largely informal, uncontrolled, and unsupported by the continent’s infrastructure. More and more people are moving to towns and cities, with limited access to urban services and functions that people need. Kenya is among the countries with a high rate of urbanization in Africa. By 2050, the population living in the urban areas in Kenya is expected to be 44% of the total population (UN Habitat, 2018).
