Built on savannah grasslands, and bordered by a national park, Nairobi’s green cityscape is the fastest growing in Africa, with a population likely to increase to 6 million by 2030.


Nairobi plans substantial development in two of its districts: Woodley, a middle-income neighbourhood, and Kasarani, a densely populated area.

Together with CUSSH, the county government is harnessing this opportunity to plan new city spaces by creating a map of buildings and green spaces that work in harmony with the environment, with people’s health right at its heart.

Thank you to the team in Nairobi
