Eco-city development and SDGs
(Sustainable Development Goals)
The theoretical aspects of Eco-city in Kisumu have been developed. Piloting the theories in Dunga Village has been started in 2018. The strategy is to continue working with the County Government and the City Management in developing a practice towards an Eco-City. The working team will include community members in Dunga who will enable the research showcase how to have an eco-village which will be scalable to the city level.
The project will also consider strategies for developing Eco-Cities with the understanding that the move towards sustainable cities or eco-cities is tied to the SDGs. The team is striving at building on the progress made in 2018 and develop new agenda for the community beyond 2020.
Popular publications for sharing with the community and stakeholders will be prepared. We shall also explore production of a journal paper.
