USING PUBLIC HEALTH REGULATIONS TO BUILD RESILIENT CITIES IN KENYA - By: Arch. Kigara Kamweru
In a few years, perhaps the next two decades, Kenya will join countries whose urban population exceeds the number of people living in the rural areas. According to Arch. Kigara Kamweru of the Department of Architecture and Building Science, the prospect of this irreversible phenomenon is a matter of grave concern given the existing evidence of our inability to create proper urban habitats. He indicates that now is the time to take action by addressing the challenges facing our fast-growing cities and other urban settlements.
