MetadataShow full item record
- NIVA-rapport 
This is an appraisal of the environmental component of the Nairobi City Implementation Plan under the Habitat guided programme "Managing Water for African Cities". The objective of this appraisal was to ensure the conformity of the plan with the objectives of the Regional Project and Kenya's needs and to explore the availability of domestic resources (human, institutional, and financial) required for efficient project implementation. The appraisal provides input for the revision of the environmental component of the City Plan using the LFA method. The envisaged project interventions include the development of a management strategy for the Ngong river catchment with particular emphasis on the Nairobi Dam, implementation of community-based improvement measures, environmental surveillance systems, public awareness building, and performance monitoring and dissemination of best practice information. This is to demonstrate in practice the potential benefits of catchment-wide and integrated approaches with a view to scaling up best practices in city-wide investment projects.
