The East Africa Research Hub (EARH) cordially invites you to attend a launch for the research project on Shaping East African Cities as Systems to Work Better for All.
The project aims to test a new approach to urbanisation research, treating each of a selection of individual cities in East Africa as an ‘integrated system.’ The objective is to deliver integrated, multi-disciplinary research that helps us understand and influence political settlements, institutions (formal and informal) and governance in rapidly growing cities, and through these support the design of targeted and integrated interventions that promote inclusive growth, poverty reduction and access to livelihoods. The intention is explicitly practical – the ‘system’ approach and integration of political economy and/or ‘political settlement’ analysis aims to understand and help overcome constraints to development in different sectors and for cross–sectoral interventions.
The meeting will take place on Friday 10th February, 2017 at the PwC Tower on Waiyaki Way, Nairobi Kenya. It is scheduled to begin at 2:00 pm up to 3:30pm East African time (Nairobi+03:00). Seating is limited and available on a first come first serve basis therefore, please R.S.V.P to Jennifer Nyakinya on email@example.com not later than Friday 3rd February, 2017 for planning purposes.
