Title:Kwale District and Mombasa Mainland South Regional Physical Development Plan 2004–2034
Lead Researcher:Mr. Herbert Musoga, Assistant Director of Physical Planning (Team Leader) & DURP

The Kwale District and Mombasa Mainland South Regional Development Plan is a long-term plan intended
to suggest a spatial framework for development of the region for a period of 30 years. It articulates
the aims of the Government of Kenya, local authorities and the citizens of Kwale and Mombasa Mainland
South. It also proposes strategies and policies intended to achieve those aims. The mandate to prepare the
plan derives from the provisions of the Physical Planning Act Cap 286 of the Laws of Kenya.
The Plan has been prepared in the context of the global goal of sustainable human settlement development
in an urbanizing world and Millennium Development Goals, 2000. It employs a participatory
approach to planning in appreciation of the local aspirations and resource realities and consists of the
written statement and graphical representation of the existing and proposed spatial structure. The following
paragraphs are an exposition of the mission statement, problem statement, vision, objectives,
methodology and the policy and legal context that set the stage for the rest of the document.

Title:Water Harvesting for sustainable environment, food security and community development in Kenya
Lead Researcher:
Dr. Mary Kimani

Water has become increasingly inaccessible to a vast majority of people in the world today.  The 3rd World Water Forum1 observed that the demand for water is increasing at an exponential rate relative to the world’s population growth rate and poverty is the most significant factor that interferes with meeting that demand.  Challenges arising from lack of access to water cut across societies.  According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are 2.2 million diarrhoea deaths related to unsafe water, sanitation, and hygiene every year.  Those at greatest risk of waterborne disease are infants and young children, people who are debilitated or living under unsanitary conditions and the elderly.

Title:Sustainable Buildings Policies in Developing Countries
Lead Researcher:
Dr. Samuel Obiero and Mr. Charles Osengo

The SPOD Project aims to create the capacity for countries to establish a policy foundation for mainstreaming sustainable construction of building, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and to assist developing countries in efforts of poverty alleviation, social equity and economic prosperity. SPOD will provide a Quick-Scan Tool  (hereinafter referred to as "QST") for government to evaluate relevant policy measures according to existing barriers and opportunities at national and local level.  The Project will also develop Policy Building Blocks (hereinafter referred to as "PBB"), which consists of tools and methodologies to design and employ the most suitable sustainable building policy tools.  The Quick-scan tool and policy building blocks will be tested and verified in the two pilot locations, Nairobi Kenya and Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso).  The outputs of the project will be disseminated through an innovative strategy of partner networks.
