Security for Informal Settlements

The Services, Development of Guidelines for Land Tenure Security for Informal Settlements, were initiated in November, 2003 and completed in August, 2004.

The main objective of the work is the development of guidelines for land tenure security for the City of Nairobi. The guidelines will serve as the basis for Nairobi City land tenure policy establishment, with special emphasis on informal settlements.

The work will be carried out by a team of consultants working in close cooperation with the inhabitants in the informal settlements, policy-makers, academics and the civil society.

The project is financed by Sida, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, the Ministry of Lands and Settlements and Nairobi City Council.
