It is to be achieved through baseline study and engagement of stakeholders and review of operational documents and existing literature, baseline data generated to enable researchers to understand the complex process of urban metabolism and ecosystem services in Kisumu City with an aim of establishing the challenges and develop framework/mechanism for policy review/formulation, research and change of approach in tackling the challenges. 

For the promotion of environmental conservation, preservation and restoration for sustainable use of natural resources, stakeholder engagement will focus on identified contentious issues on sustainable utilization of natural resources and waste resources management as well as intervention opportunities.
