Message from the CEO<br />

“At the end of the day, the rules<br />

are simple; safety and security”<br />

Welcome <strong>to</strong> the first issue our e-newsletter,<br />

<strong>The</strong> Developer’s <strong>Digest</strong>: <strong>January</strong> – <strong>March</strong><br />

<strong>2019</strong>.<br />

In this issue, our theme is “<strong>The</strong> Importance of<br />

Effective Urban Planning and Infrastructure<br />

Development” and have featured articles submitted<br />

by professionals from different realms of the real<br />

estate sec<strong>to</strong>r.<br />

You will note however that at the beginning of this<br />

page, I have shared a quote made by Mary Jodi Rell<br />

an American former Republican politician and the<br />

87th Governor of the U.S. State of Connecticut from<br />

2004 until 2011. <strong>The</strong> events over the last month<br />

prompt us <strong>to</strong> revisit what is significant.<br />

KPDA condoles with the victims of the collapsed<br />

four-s<strong>to</strong>rey primary school building in Lagos, Nigeria<br />

that occurred on 14th <strong>March</strong> <strong>2019</strong> which killed over<br />

twenty people, majority of whom were children. <strong>The</strong><br />

collapse brings <strong>to</strong> the fore the paramount importance<br />

of building and construction safety, an element<br />

that we as Kenyans should continuously strive <strong>to</strong><br />

maintain.<br />

We also cannot ignore the extremely unfortunately<br />

crash of the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8<br />

that happened on 10th <strong>March</strong> <strong>2019</strong> and resulted in<br />

the death of 157 people from various nations. May<br />

the Almighty provide the families of the victims’<br />

comfort and grace <strong>to</strong> keep going. May this case<br />

cause the airline industry <strong>to</strong> rethink their short-term<br />

and long-term ambitions and focus on the safety of<br />

passengers.<br />

In this issue, our Have Your Say article is a submission<br />

by the Architectural Association of Kenya on “<strong>The</strong><br />

Importance of an Au<strong>to</strong>mated Construction Permit<br />

Process.” <strong>The</strong>re are even more informative articles<br />

that we hope you will find as useful reads.<br />

We would love <strong>to</strong> hear from you on how we can<br />

Focus on Policy<br />

<strong>The</strong> Impact of Effective<br />

Urban Planning for the<br />

Successful Delivery of<br />

Housing in Kenya<br />

<strong>The</strong> Kenya constitution provides that every<br />

citizen has a “…right <strong>to</strong> accessible and<br />

adequate housing and <strong>to</strong> a reasonable<br />

standard of sanitation.” Session paper no. 3 of 2004,<br />

also known as the National Housing Policy and<br />

Vision 2030 both establish the goals and underscore<br />

the message of “decent and affordable housing”.<br />

As a signa<strong>to</strong>ry <strong>to</strong> the United Nation’s Strategic<br />

Development Goals (SDGs), Kenya is dedicated <strong>to</strong><br />

honour target 1 of goal 11 that urges governments <strong>to</strong><br />

“ensure for all adequate, safe and affordable housing<br />

and basic services and <strong>to</strong> upgrade slums”. Almost<br />

everyone reasonably familiar with housing issues in<br />

Kenya agrees on the most pressing challenge is the<br />

shortfall in supply <strong>to</strong> demand.<br />

Housing outcomes are largely determined by the<br />

invisible hand of the market. Most conventional<br />

approaches <strong>to</strong> supply are hopelessly inadequate<br />

and irrelevant <strong>to</strong> the vast majority in dire need of<br />

shelter. <strong>The</strong> challenge of urban housing, especially<br />

for low-income populations, has consisted of isolated<br />

interventions, making little significant impact<br />

on urban need. <strong>The</strong> ambitious site and service<br />

schemes of the 70s and the more recent Kenya Slum<br />

Upgrading Programme (KENSUP) and the Kenya<br />

Informal Settlement Improvement Programme<br />

(KISIP) are public policy <strong>to</strong>ols that may have excited<br />

hope <strong>to</strong> millions with the big promise <strong>to</strong> improved<br />

shelter and livelihood, but the shortfall and the<br />

challenge of inadequacy prevail.<br />

If we ask what kind of more intervention is needed<br />

<strong>to</strong> resolve this challenge, the responses vary, and<br />

more often less confident and muddled. Many<br />

explanations are offered including the unpresented<br />

population growth coupled with rapid urbanisation<br />

that urban systems cannot keep up with; economic,<br />

social and fiscal inequalities and the decreasing<br />

purchasing power of households. <strong>The</strong>re has been<br />

an apparent failure <strong>to</strong> provide certainty and clear<br />

direction <strong>to</strong> stakeholders regarding the housing<br />

affordability dilemma; a common understanding of<br />

what constitutes a balanced and reasonable housing<br />

benefits the community can reasonably expect.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are glaring policy gaps in the urban planning<br />

and development processes; inadequate analysis<br />

of housing affordability vis-à-vis household income<br />

and expenditure that would provide an informed<br />

evidence based policy on appropriate measures of<br />

Focus on Policy<br />

housing affordability. <strong>The</strong> new direction and call<br />

for action under the “Big 4 Agenda” puts affordable<br />

housing policy at the forefront of the creeping crisis<br />

of housing affordability. With an ambitious target<br />

<strong>to</strong> deliver 500,000 homes by 2022, the national<br />

government has adopted Marslow’s hierarchy<br />

principles in reconceptualising affordable housing as<br />

a social and economic security.<br />

On this renewed approach, developers and housing<br />

stakeholders need <strong>to</strong> bring up the true and accurate<br />

extent of the problem of lack of investment in lowincome<br />

housing. With a deficit of close <strong>to</strong> 2 million<br />

units – and still rising – many low-income Kenyans<br />

cannot find housing in the private market. In<br />

response, policy makers need <strong>to</strong> advance stronger<br />

interventions <strong>to</strong> the housing needs and support<br />

<strong>to</strong> the housing market; the use of the cost-benefit<br />

analysis techniques and business cases for affordable<br />

housing <strong>to</strong> attract additional investment, especially<br />

from private sec<strong>to</strong>r sources.<br />

Housing affordability is a complex challenge and a<br />

major public policy issue that requires wholesale<br />

revision by putting it <strong>to</strong> test for both physical results<br />

and community acceptance. Public policy has the<br />

potential <strong>to</strong> improve the efficiency and priority<br />

and equity of housing markets, if well designed<br />

and implemented. Taking a paradigm shift from<br />

Almost everyone<br />

reasonably familiar<br />

with housing issues<br />

in Kenya agrees on<br />

the most pressing<br />

challenge is the<br />

shortfall in supply <strong>to</strong><br />

demand.<br />

responses that his<strong>to</strong>rically focussed on the income<br />

ratio model of affordability <strong>to</strong> a more holistic<br />

measure of affordability that encompasses wellbeing<br />

indica<strong>to</strong>rs and life cycle needs such as transport,<br />

health, education, cultural adequacy and community<br />

cohesion. Putting more emphasis on the need <strong>to</strong><br />

consider responsive financing <strong>to</strong>ols, expanding<br />

funding sources and forging of partnerships with the<br />

private sec<strong>to</strong>r in identifying underutilised public and<br />

private land suitable for affordable housing.<br />

What role does urban planning play in this<br />

complicated private-public sec<strong>to</strong>r interaction?<br />

Planning has a unique perspective of having an<br />

improved public participation leverage among public<br />

policy fields due <strong>to</strong> its comprehensiveness ranging<br />

from regulating land use and environmental controls,<br />

stimulating development activities and creating<br />

across board networks among public-private sec<strong>to</strong>r<br />

ac<strong>to</strong>rs. In its full range of potential action, planning<br />

should go further <strong>to</strong> mitigate the wealth and income<br />

inequality gaps in the housing markets by exploring<br />

alternative definitions and relaxed minimum housing<br />

design standards, reduced parking requirements and<br />

restrictive land use regulations. A good example is<br />

the Singapore’s comprehensive plan that ties <strong>to</strong> the<br />

national land use plan, <strong>to</strong>tal living concept and the<br />

manpower and technical development plan. This<br />

policy integration allows new projects <strong>to</strong> respond<br />

effectively <strong>to</strong> community needs.<br />

<strong>The</strong> role urban planning for housing supply is critical<br />

<strong>to</strong> economic growth; the potential impact on the high<br />

housing costs due <strong>to</strong> distances that are inconvenient<br />

<strong>to</strong> economic activities; housing location, construction<br />

and maintenance have a direct bearing on income<br />

growth. Taking the example of Nairobi’s day and<br />

night population fluctuation of 1.5 million individuals<br />

To mitigate<br />

environmental<br />

impacts, planning<br />

policy should<br />

encourage use<br />

of clean building<br />

technologies,<br />

efficient and reliable<br />

transport systems.<br />

spending a significant amount of time and money<br />

engaged in travel <strong>to</strong> and from the city suburbs. <strong>The</strong>se<br />

movement dynamics and synergies are pointers<br />

that accrue <strong>to</strong> developments that are commonly<br />

known as transit oriented developments (TOD).<br />

Efficient public transportation is an essential element<br />

in the success of affordable housing. Of course<br />

these far flung locations reduce mortgage or rental<br />

payments but also attract additional household<br />

costs and undermine income growth. To mitigate<br />

environmental impacts, planning policy should<br />

encourage use of clean building technologies,<br />

efficient and reliable transport systems.<br />

Under the devolution governance, the planner’s<br />

<strong>to</strong>ols in resolving the anticipated housing challenges<br />

are well defined: the basic and fundamental <strong>to</strong>ol is<br />

creating awareness of space and place through land<br />

use plans and spatial strategies that communicate<br />

information about future development at national<br />

and county level. Reading from a variety of national<br />

policy documents such as Vision 2030, the National<br />

Spatial Plan (2015-2045), National Land Use Policy<br />

(Session Paper No 1 of 2017) and the Nairobi Metro<br />

2030, it is clear that Kenya’s housing policy is<br />

connected through emphasis of specific objectives<br />

for attaining decent housing. Cascading these<br />

objectives <strong>to</strong> the county level, the chosen instrument<br />

of achieving housing delivery resides in the tenyear<br />

County Spatial Plan (CSP) which the County<br />

Government Act, inter alia, states that a CSP “… shall<br />

indicate where public and private land development<br />

and infrastructure investment should take place”.<br />

As a county function, County Governments should<br />

use the CSP <strong>to</strong> provide strategic guidance in respect<br />

of location and nature of compatible developments<br />

by examining the intertwined expedience of<br />

infrastructural development with broad assessment<br />

of housing needs.<br />

Subsequent <strong>to</strong> the CSP are a series of catalytic tenyear<br />

County Sec<strong>to</strong>ral Plans. As a critical response <strong>to</strong><br />

rapid urbanisation resulting in shelter deficit, County<br />

Governments should develop comprehensive County<br />

Housing Development Plans (CHDP) (not the vague<br />

MoU’s most counties are rushing <strong>to</strong> sign with the<br />

National Government) as frameworks that provide<br />

the detailed process of analysing the shelter needs in<br />

the county, organizing the resources and facilitating<br />

society <strong>to</strong> access housing that is adequate,<br />

affordable, functional and environmentally<br />

sustainable. This CHDP is the ideal platform <strong>to</strong><br />

respond local affordable housing needs and <strong>to</strong><br />

initiate well-structured partnerships with the private<br />

sec<strong>to</strong>r <strong>to</strong> execute local housing programmes and<br />

projects. <strong>The</strong> CHPD should also be the performance<br />

moni<strong>to</strong>ring <strong>to</strong>ol and maintenance guide that is<br />

necessary <strong>to</strong> ensure community expectations are<br />

met and for the long lifespan for housing s<strong>to</strong>ck and<br />

disaster responsiveness.<br />

<strong>The</strong> national affordable housing program under<br />

the “Big 4 Agenda” provides a great opportunity<br />

for counties (particularly those in metropolitan<br />

areas) <strong>to</strong> enact sweeping reforms <strong>to</strong> enable them<br />

use the existing statu<strong>to</strong>ry and planning policy <strong>to</strong>ols<br />

<strong>to</strong> harness new technologies <strong>to</strong> achieve more agile<br />

and critical policy responses and capitalise on the<br />

urbanisation opportunities and housing priorities. As<br />

“housing pressure demand” zones, the Nairobi Metro<br />

Region counties (picking from the Nairobi Metro 2030<br />

Strategy <strong>to</strong> develop their local CSP and CHDP) should<br />

be at the forefront <strong>to</strong> partner with the National<br />

Government and adopt a system that responds <strong>to</strong><br />

housing market signals and move closer <strong>to</strong> engage<br />

with the private sec<strong>to</strong>r in decision making procedures<br />

that take full account of the wider cost and benefits<br />

of housing development.<br />

<strong>The</strong> technological change presents real opportunity<br />

for more accurate and better informed planning<br />

and development processes. Article 105 (1)(f) of the<br />

County Government Act mandates counties <strong>to</strong> be<br />

responsible for “ensuring the establishment of a GIS<br />

based database system” that would provide more<br />

powerful analytical support underpinned by big<br />

data and locational intelligence <strong>to</strong>ols. Addressing<br />

these challenges will require significant financial<br />

investment in Land Information Management<br />

Systems (LIMS) and institutional reforms across the<br />

housing sec<strong>to</strong>r, but particularly within government.<br />

Some few counties have made impressive strides<br />

on the planning policy formulation framework and<br />

the au<strong>to</strong>mation of their planning services. What<br />

remains is a sharper focus on public-private sec<strong>to</strong>r<br />

engagement in developing comprehensive guidelines<br />

on affordable housing and putting a little more<br />

momentum in the efficiency of planning approvals<br />

and other subsequent processes such as the criteria<br />

for eligibility, a transparent vetting for allocation/<br />

purchasing and conveyancing. For the less urbanising<br />

counties, such transformation should be seen in the<br />

long-run context but with our nascent devolution<br />

governance, it will inevitably happen with time.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Kenya Property Developers Association<br />

(KPDA) continues in constructive engagement with<br />

the National Government in exploring areas of<br />

government support through incentives that will<br />

help spur private developers <strong>to</strong> invest in affordable<br />

housing. This engagement should widen <strong>to</strong> include<br />

selected counties that are bearing the brunt of the<br />

pilot affordable housing projects <strong>to</strong> address the<br />

planning challenges and development processes.<br />

<strong>The</strong> progressive engagement should satisfy the high<br />

expectation already exhibited by individuals that<br />

have joined organised groups or SACCOs with the aim<br />

of owning a house<br />

<strong>The</strong> Importance of an<br />

Au<strong>to</strong>mated Construction<br />

Permit Process<br />

<strong>The</strong> construction industry in Kenya plays a<br />

significant role in determining the country’s<br />

level of socio-economic development. <strong>The</strong><br />

linkages between the industry and other sec<strong>to</strong>rs of<br />

the economy therefore make it a major contribu<strong>to</strong>r<br />

<strong>to</strong> the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).<br />

Based on this, the government through the Vision<br />

2030 blueprint and the Big4 Agenda recognizes it as<br />

a main driver <strong>to</strong> enhancing the economic prosperity<br />

and global competitiveness of the country. Presently,<br />

the Kenyan construction landscape continues <strong>to</strong><br />

experience a raft of changes with various studies<br />

indicating that it is set <strong>to</strong> grow steadily over the next<br />

By <strong>The</strong> Architectural Association of Kenya<br />

decade due <strong>to</strong> the government’s huge spending on<br />

infrastructure development across the country. <strong>The</strong><br />

2018 Economic Survey report by the Kenya National<br />

Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) revealed that the building<br />

and construction sec<strong>to</strong>r grew by 8.6% in 2017 with<br />

loans and advances from financial institutions <strong>to</strong> the<br />

sec<strong>to</strong>r increasing <strong>to</strong> Kshs. 109.9 billion in the same<br />

year as compared <strong>to</strong> Kshs. .8 billion reported in 2016<br />

Development Control (DC) generally refers <strong>to</strong><br />

the exercise of authority by both county and<br />

national governments <strong>to</strong> guide spatial data in the<br />

built environment by regulating the use of land<br />

and activities allowable within the respective<br />

administrative units. Accordingly, development<br />

control involves a range of activities that revolve<br />

around assessing the prevailing development<br />

scenario, land information, building codes and<br />

design as well as other development and planning<br />

regulations as prescribed in law. In essence therefore,<br />

development control operates within the tenets<br />

of delimiting, regulating and managing land uses;<br />

organizing service infrastructure as well as utilities<br />

and facilities necessary for enhancing livability<br />

within human settlements while coordinating and<br />

integrating economic, socio-cultural and physical<br />

components of the built environment. In the<br />

backdrop of increased urbanization and rapid rates of<br />

population growth within a framework of inadequate<br />

resources, development control has in recent years<br />

emerged as a critical <strong>to</strong>ol in managing the nature and<br />

rate of urban development.<br />

An au<strong>to</strong>mated system in the issuance of construction<br />

permits thus serves as an integral <strong>to</strong>ol <strong>to</strong>wards the<br />

control of development in Kenya.<br />

<strong>The</strong> process of procuring construction permits in<br />

Kenya continues <strong>to</strong> present a great challenge <strong>to</strong><br />

developers and built environment professionals.<br />

Despite continued efforts <strong>to</strong> regulate issuance of the<br />

same through introduction of new land regulations<br />

and integration of land agencies, different studies<br />

have shown that the permitting process in different<br />

parts of the country continues <strong>to</strong> be a daunting task<br />

especially due <strong>to</strong> the long time taken <strong>to</strong> obtain such<br />

permits. <strong>The</strong> delays have now emerged as precursors<br />

for the issuance of false permits by quacks and<br />

unscrupulous professionals thereby resulting <strong>to</strong> the<br />

construction of unauthorized structures that are<br />

unsafe <strong>to</strong> their inhabitants. A retrospective look at<br />

the inherent challenges reveals that the lack of an<br />

integrated central database management system for<br />

permit agencies coupled by analogous institutions<br />

involved in the permitting process are <strong>to</strong> blame for<br />

the mushrooming of illegal structures in various parts<br />

of the country.<br />

An au<strong>to</strong>mated construction permitting system will<br />

therefore be critical in addressing such intrinsic<br />

challenges by ensuring effective compliance and<br />

support the coordination of the multiple agencies<br />

involved in the permitting process. An au<strong>to</strong>mated<br />

construction permitting system will enhance the<br />

management of construction permits by integrating<br />

the national and county databases in a manner<br />

that would negate conflicting roles and promote<br />

compliance for individual developments through an<br />

intuitive web interface.<br />

A recent study commissioned by the Architectural<br />

Association of Kenya (AAK) revealed that the<br />

have your say<br />

construction permit review and approval cycles<br />

were subject <strong>to</strong> numerous challenges and<br />

inefficiencies with respect <strong>to</strong> service delivery. <strong>The</strong><br />

poor service delivery was further exacerbated by<br />

the bureaucracy and long timelines involved in<br />

acquisition of construction permits across different<br />

parts of the country. <strong>The</strong> pressure <strong>to</strong> improve the<br />

quality and speed of construction permit reviews<br />

as well as citizen service delivery therefore presents<br />

a new conundrum <strong>to</strong> counties keen on remaining<br />

attractive investment destinations. An e-permitting<br />

platform thus becomes an integral component for<br />

counties in providing efficient and secure methods<br />

that accelerate the access and approval of digital<br />

construction permits thereby enhancing building<br />

inspection procedures, optimizing cus<strong>to</strong>mer service<br />

and staff efficiency through multiparty collaboration<br />

within permit agencies. In addition, an au<strong>to</strong>mated<br />

construction permitting system would enhance the<br />

quality of inspection and reporting since building<br />

inspec<strong>to</strong>rs will have access <strong>to</strong> on-site digital access <strong>to</strong><br />

all permit application documents thereby ensuring<br />

that only buildings that are structurally sound are<br />

granted occupancy certificates.<br />

<strong>The</strong> adoption of digital platforms <strong>to</strong> facilitate easier<br />

issuance of construction permits <strong>to</strong> developers<br />

and built environment professionals would make it<br />

easier <strong>to</strong> access and verify information relating <strong>to</strong><br />

any development applications thereby enhancing<br />

transparency. Further, an e-permitting system would<br />

facilitate faster flow of development applications<br />

from one approving entity <strong>to</strong> another making it less<br />

bureaucratic while increasing efficiency<br />

Rail Transport for the Future<br />

Nairobi<br />

By Upperhill District Association (UHDA)<br />

It is estimated that the average commuter in<br />

Nairobi spends more than 4 hours a day in<br />

traffic. <strong>The</strong> average commute is roughly 40<br />

kilometers which ideally is a distance that should<br />

take less than an hour. 95% of people who work in<br />

Upper Hill do not live in Upper Hill. Most people live<br />

along Lang’ata road, Mombasa road, Ngong road,<br />

Jogoo road, Thika road or Kiambu road. This means<br />

that majority of these people are among the many<br />

commuters who spend long hours stuck in traffic<br />

while commuting <strong>to</strong> work or home.<br />

Currently, most roads in Upper Hill have been<br />

upgraded <strong>to</strong> dual carriage ways and several Public<br />

Service Vehicle (PSVs) buses have created new routes<br />

<strong>to</strong> cater for the high number of commuters in the<br />

area. Although the Government’s effort in improving<br />

roads in Upper Hill is commendable, there is need for<br />

effective urban planning in Nairobi.<br />

Nairobi City County has been pushing for the<br />

upgrading of the rail transport which will be a<br />

welcome relief <strong>to</strong> commuters. 1 train coach can<br />

accommodate at least 100 passengers which is<br />

almost thrice the size of a PSV bus and over 20<br />

times more compared <strong>to</strong> a 4 passenger vehicle. <strong>The</strong><br />

introduction of commuter trains will not only reduce<br />

the number of vehicles on the road but will also<br />

reduce the commuting time spent by both rail and<br />

road commuters. Currently, the train that operates<br />

along Jogoo road <strong>to</strong> the CBD takes 20-30 minutes.<br />

Imagine if this was the case for other satellite <strong>to</strong>wns<br />

such as Kasarani, Lang’ata, Kiambu and Ngong.<br />

Better yet, imagine if this was the case for a commute<br />

from Upper Hill <strong>to</strong> Westlands.<br />

For urban planning <strong>to</strong> be effective the transportation<br />

systems must be improved because they are part of<br />

what spurs economic growth in an area. For a rapidly<br />

growing Nairobi, rail transport is one of the systems<br />

which can help reduce the time many commuters<br />

spend traveling <strong>to</strong> work. Economies such as Japan<br />

have invested heavily in rail transport which caters <strong>to</strong><br />

mass and high speed travel within urban areas.<br />

Fast commuting time means, the workers get <strong>to</strong> office<br />

in time and businesses will be opened on time. It<br />

means cus<strong>to</strong>mers can get <strong>to</strong> your business not just<br />

on time but hustle free. It means commuters will<br />

get quality family time because they will pick their<br />

children from school on time or see them before<br />

its dark. It means productivity levels are increased<br />

because we will have less stressed/tired workers.<br />

It means that people will be healthy and safe from<br />

inhaling harmful gases produced by vehicles that are<br />

stuck on road traffic<br />

<strong>The</strong> Imperative for Smart<br />

Cities<br />

<strong>The</strong> Context<br />

<strong>The</strong> smart city is a multidimensional concept<br />

with no universal definition. Efforts and<br />

policies <strong>to</strong> develop smart cities in countries<br />

around the world <strong>to</strong> achieve sustainable growth<br />

and higher efficiency are increasing. At the same<br />

time, cities around the world compete <strong>to</strong> attract<br />

higher volumes of FDI, which requires specific urban<br />

characteristics <strong>to</strong> enable these cities <strong>to</strong> become more<br />

competitive and resilient. In these developmental<br />

pursuits, Africa’s involvement and performance<br />

By <strong>The</strong> Kenya Green Building Society (KGBS)<br />

in smart city innovation and FDI competitiveness<br />

remains modest.<br />

Smart city investments are cheaper and easier <strong>to</strong><br />

run in the medium term because there is a single<br />

control system <strong>to</strong> manage such urban characteristics<br />

as transportation, water and energy grids (more<br />

coordinated and flexible systems). This improves<br />

efficiency, transparency, and public safety; reduces<br />

congestion and pollution; and enhances traffic<br />

management and routing. Major ICT companies<br />

are investing heavily in technologies that allow city<br />

managers <strong>to</strong> address their urban challenges in new<br />

ways. <strong>The</strong>refore, being part of worldwide networks<br />

is an opportunity not <strong>to</strong> be missed (Ander<strong>to</strong>n and<br />

Akinola, 2011).<br />

For cities, and particularly for African cities, economic<br />

sustainability is a central issue because many cities<br />

lack appropriate urban and socio-economic planning<br />

strategies while their populations are booming.<br />

Economic sustainability is a major pillar of smart<br />

city development and besides improving the local<br />

economic context, needs <strong>to</strong> be seriously addressed<br />

<strong>to</strong> promote the attraction of investment and business<br />

(International Electrotechnical Commission, 2014).<br />

(Source: <strong>The</strong> State of African Cities Report 2018. <strong>The</strong><br />

Geography of African Investment).<br />

Eastern African cities are characterized by sprawl,<br />

high levels of slums and informality, with limited<br />

institutional capacity <strong>to</strong> regulate, administer<br />

and manage housing and land market functions.<br />

Essentially, cities in Eastern Africa are fast growing,<br />

with the majority of growth taking place in slums.<br />

Ineffective and dual (formal and informal) land<br />

management systems present Eastern African<br />

governments with many local-level challenges,<br />

especially in terms of infrastructure provision and<br />

access <strong>to</strong> services. <strong>The</strong>re is also a significant lack<br />

of moni<strong>to</strong>ring and measuring systems that can<br />

provide data required <strong>to</strong> inform strategy-making<br />

and implementation. Informal systems fill a gap in<br />

the absence of adequate state capacity and political<br />

will <strong>to</strong> organize effective systems of governance and<br />

provide a sociocultural framework through which<br />

land markets can continue <strong>to</strong> operate. Institutions<br />

are confronted with the unpredictability of urbanrural<br />

movement in Eastern Africa.<br />

Urban planners in Eastern Africa are heavily<br />

influenced by the normative orientations of urban<br />

planning in the Global North. This is reflected in the<br />

three elements comprising most urban planning<br />

in Eastern Africa: a master plan (such as a spatial<br />

development framework); planning and building<br />

standards and regulations; and, a system <strong>to</strong> control<br />

development. Yet, the direct transplanting of the<br />

master planning approach in<strong>to</strong> Eastern African<br />

planning contexts ignores the fact that the majority<br />

of growth in Eastern African cities occurs in slums and<br />

informal settlements. In such circumstances master<br />

planning may directly contribute <strong>to</strong> further social and<br />

spatial marginalization or exclusion from the urban<br />

fabric. <strong>The</strong> segregation that characterizes many<br />

Eastern African cities involved the deployment of<br />

European urban planning processes as instruments<br />

of division and control over colonial cities and their<br />

populations, segregating them along racial, ethnic, or<br />

political lines.<br />

Planning regimes deployed in Eastern African (and<br />

other African) cities have not been focused upon the<br />

needed sociopolitical reforms and changes necessary<br />

in African cities. Consequently, while isolated<br />

pockets of planned urban spaces exist in terms of<br />

residential, industrial and corridor developments,<br />

these remain largely piecemeal, responding only <strong>to</strong><br />

a minority of, often wealthier, recipients. Negotiating<br />

existing patterns of segregation, as well as how<br />

formal and informal systems combine, are critical<br />

elements <strong>to</strong> unlocking the “dualistic nature of<br />

urban development” that persists in cities such as<br />

Kampala and Nairobi where informal housing and<br />

development control procedures dominate.<br />

Nairobi, the second largest city in the East African<br />

sub-region after Dar es Salaam, accommodates more<br />

than one-third of Kenya’s <strong>to</strong>tal number of urban<br />

dwellers. <strong>The</strong> impacts of continued rapid growth<br />

of Eastern African primate cities include acute<br />

housing shortages, traffic congestion, pollution and<br />

uncontrolled peri-urban sprawl.<br />

A Message from our Partners<br />

A Message from our Partners<br />

Urban governance regimes vary between Eastern<br />

African countries, with various types of centralized<br />

and decentralized systems. Radical changes<br />

introduced under Kenya’s new constitution of<br />

2010 should have major implications for local<br />

governments in the country. On paper, the<br />

constitution stipulates a reduction in presidential<br />

authority; a greater role for parliament; and an<br />

independent judiciary. It also makes provision for<br />

greater devolution of powers <strong>to</strong> elected local and<br />

district governments, though this will take time <strong>to</strong><br />

implement. Kenya’s urban governments can thus be<br />

expected <strong>to</strong> change. However, it is unclear whether<br />

this change will make them more responsive <strong>to</strong><br />

popular pressures, as many of the new arrangements<br />

seem <strong>to</strong> have allocated more power <strong>to</strong> appointed<br />

officials than elected representatives. <strong>The</strong>re is also a<br />

very real danger that this attempt at devolution will<br />

swallow up resources for a multitude of additional<br />

staff that might otherwise have been spent on service<br />

delivery. As Kenya’s public debt edges close <strong>to</strong> 50 per<br />

cent of gross domestic product, some government<br />

officials see the new system as financially, and<br />

politically, unworkable.<br />

With 45.2 per cent of Nairobi’s income going <strong>to</strong> the<br />

richest 10 per cent of its population in 2006, and only<br />

1.6 per cent of the city’s income going <strong>to</strong> the poorest<br />

10 per cent, the ability <strong>to</strong> deploy decentralized<br />

controls, functions and services within the city<br />

require accommodating a complex range of local<br />

considerations. Instead, programmes that operate<br />

under these circumstances usually focus on in situ<br />

development and improving the resilience of poor<br />

urban households <strong>to</strong> shocks, as with the Nairobi<br />

Urban Social Protection Programme which Oxfam<br />

initiated in Oc<strong>to</strong>ber 2009.<br />

Municipal and central governments have only<br />

limited capacity <strong>to</strong> govern urban land markets<br />

effectively. Revenue from land and property<br />

transfers, sales, rates and taxes, upon which<br />

municipalities generally depend, is uncollected<br />

and is captured by the informal sec<strong>to</strong>r. <strong>The</strong> dual<br />

system of land management in Eastern African<br />

cities therefore presents municipalities, city and<br />

central governments with a challenge; the system is<br />

unsuitable for the long-term development of these<br />

cities, since municipal revenues and the capacity <strong>to</strong><br />

act are inadequate <strong>to</strong> the task.<br />

Private developers and service providers are active<br />

in Eastern African cities, despite the insecurity<br />

associated with investment; opportunities exist<br />

for growth precisely because of the lack of formal<br />

infrastructure and service provision. Private<br />

sec<strong>to</strong>r projects usually involve establishing gated<br />

developments aiming for off-grid infrastructural<br />

security. <strong>The</strong>se inadvertently fragment urban<br />

landscapes, contributing <strong>to</strong> higher levels of<br />

separation of the wealthy from poor areas and<br />

residents.<br />

In summary, urban governance in Eastern African<br />

cities encounters a wide range of contexts,<br />

including high levels of poverty, slums and<br />

inequality, and conflict-ridden urban zones that<br />

are contested by militant political and religious<br />

<strong>The</strong>re is also a<br />

very real danger<br />

that this attempt<br />

at devolution will<br />

swallow up resources<br />

for a multitude of<br />

additional staff that<br />

might otherwise have<br />

been spent on service<br />

delivery.<br />

groups. Decentralization faces a range of challenges,<br />

especially that of achieving greater levels of<br />

coordination, revenue collection, and more equitable<br />

governance and service provision across the city.<br />

Overcoming these challenges would provide an<br />

essential foundation for healthy and liveable urban<br />

environments in Eastern Africa.<br />

To attract talent and investment, cities will need <strong>to</strong><br />

be sustainable, citizen centric, economically vibrant,<br />

accessible, resilient, well governed and responsive. In<br />

the distant future, urban infrastructure and services<br />

will be a function of the way technology and, more<br />

importantly, business models evolve. However,<br />

future cities are expected <strong>to</strong> exhibit the following<br />

characteristics:<br />

• Sustainable: Such a city demonstrates balanced<br />

accomplishment of social and economic<br />

development, environmental management and<br />

effective urban governance.<br />

• Citizen centric: <strong>The</strong> focus in this city is on<br />

the physical, mental and social well-being of<br />

individuals and society, encompassing many<br />

fac<strong>to</strong>rs (life satisfaction, physical health,<br />

psychological state, level of independence,<br />

education, wealth, religious beliefs, local<br />

services and infrastructure, employment, social<br />

relationships and cultural perspectives, among<br />

others).<br />

• Economically vibrant: Such a city attracts<br />

investments, facilitates business, nurtures<br />

indispensable assets (its well-educated people),<br />

improves productivity, promotes growth and<br />

expands opportunities for all stakeholders.<br />

• Accessible: All sections of society in an accessible<br />

city can live independently and participate fully<br />

in all aspects of life. This city ensures that people<br />

with special abilities and the vulnerable section<br />

of society have equal access <strong>to</strong> all services<br />

provided.<br />

• Resilient: Such a city enhances the capacity of<br />

individuals, communities, institutions, businesses<br />

and systems <strong>to</strong> survive and adapt while they<br />

experience chronic stress and acute shock<br />

across health, the economy, infrastructure and<br />

environment.<br />

• Well governed: This city optimally utilizes<br />

resources <strong>to</strong> effectively realize the short- and<br />

long-term agenda of its development, while<br />

achieving greater transparency in public<br />

decision-making and establishing institutional<br />

accountability.<br />

This city ensures that<br />

people with special<br />

abilities and the<br />

vulnerable section<br />

of society have equal<br />

access <strong>to</strong> all services<br />

provided.<br />

• Responsive: To consume its available resources<br />

in the best way possible, such a city enables all<br />

stakeholders <strong>to</strong> use data collected by digital<br />

infrastructure <strong>to</strong> spot patterns, identify problems<br />

and make real-time decisions.<br />

• Planned: This city strengthens its local economy<br />

by creating a master plan that integrates all<br />

urban domains, and offers enough flexibility <strong>to</strong><br />

make amendments <strong>to</strong> the plan when external<br />

conditions change or when innovative solutions<br />

emerge.<br />

Cities would move through stages of development<br />

in the journey <strong>to</strong> attain or strengthen these<br />

characteristics, particularly the six key levers of<br />

governance, planning, urban services, collaboration,<br />

technology use and sustainable development. <strong>The</strong>se<br />

stages are described as:<br />

• Rudimentary: battling <strong>to</strong> meet demand and<br />

supply – Functional: meeting residents’ essential<br />

needs and starting <strong>to</strong> adopt modern solutions<br />

• Integrated: meeting the aspirational needs of all<br />

stakeholders and adopting a holistic approach<br />

<strong>to</strong>wards urban development<br />

• Scalable: being ready for new challenges that<br />

emerge on the horizon and adapting quickly <strong>to</strong><br />

address these changing scenarios<br />

Cities can use the six levers in this “city maturity”<br />

model <strong>to</strong> navigate through the stages. Moreover,<br />

by using the technology lever or a combination of<br />

them, they may be able <strong>to</strong> leapfrog stages. Again, the<br />

use of levers will need <strong>to</strong> be adapted <strong>to</strong> the cities’<br />

distinctive contexts in order <strong>to</strong> strengthen their DNA<br />

while navigating through the stages of development.<br />

Town Integrated<br />

Development Planning -<br />

Sustainable Infrastructure<br />

Development<br />

Overview<br />

Towns, cities or urban areas have been<br />

described as centres of human civilization<br />

and expression of human excellence. Towns<br />

are also the seat of government and power. Towns<br />

are indeed defined as the focal points and engines<br />

of development. Nairobi city alone, for example,<br />

contributes over 60 percent GDP for Kenya.<br />

It is noted however that sustainable development of<br />

<strong>to</strong>wns and cities requires integrated development<br />

planning. Sustainable urban development planning<br />

includes integrated development of the road<br />

network and support infrastructure and utilities –<br />

water, sewerage, drainage, power and ICT. Looking<br />

at Nairobi city for example, what is required <strong>to</strong><br />

achieve integrated development planning and<br />

the development of roads and infrastructure<br />

works? <strong>The</strong>re are many fac<strong>to</strong>rs <strong>to</strong> consider, but this<br />

presentation is focus on one core and foundation<br />

component – integrated urban land use planning.<br />

Integrated City Land use Plan<br />

In all <strong>to</strong>wns and cities, there are several development<br />

or land use activities competing for limited urban<br />

land space. <strong>The</strong>se development activities include<br />

– housing, manufacturing industry, commerce,<br />

schools, health facilities, community and social<br />

facilities, recreation and open spaces, infrastructure<br />

and utilities, transport system, agriculture etc.<br />

A Message from our Partners<br />

By Mairura Omwenga,<br />

Chairman, Town and County Planners Association of Kenya(TCPAK)<br />

In order <strong>to</strong> minimize conflict and enhance benefits<br />

among the various land uses, it is always important<br />

<strong>to</strong> prepare the <strong>to</strong>wn or city integrated land use plan<br />

or master plan as is known in other jurisdictions.<br />

<strong>The</strong> first statu<strong>to</strong>ry Nairobi colonial city master<br />

was prepared in 1948 and for a long time the city<br />

development plan was not updated <strong>to</strong> reflect the<br />

massive city population and spatial growth. This<br />

means that the development in the city has been<br />

haphazard and without effective control. It is<br />

appreciated that in 2015, Nairobi prepared updated<br />

20-30 year city integrated development plan.<br />

It is important <strong>to</strong> note that the Constitution of Kenya<br />

provides that –<br />

Article 60: Land in Kenya shall be held, used and<br />

managed in a manner that is equitable, efficient,<br />

productive and sustainable;<br />

Article 66: <strong>The</strong> state may regulate the use of any<br />

land, any interest in or right over any land, in the<br />

interest of defense public safety, public order, public<br />

morality, public health, or land use planning.<br />

In addition, under the County Governments Act and<br />

Urban Areas and Cities Act, all urban areas and cities<br />

must prepare integrated development plans <strong>to</strong> guide<br />

and control development.<br />

land use in a <strong>to</strong>wn or city development plan. Roads,<br />

for example, consume 10-15 percent of the urban<br />

land. <strong>The</strong> Physical Planning Act 1996 provides for<br />

the preparation of local physical/subject plans for<br />

road works. A casual survey however shows that<br />

no such land use/physical development plans are<br />

prepared for road works in Kenya. This said state<br />

of affairs explains the numerous challenges that<br />

face the implementation of many <strong>to</strong>wn/city road<br />

projects in Kenya. Lack of integrated land use plan<br />

for a road leads <strong>to</strong> conflicts in the development of<br />

roads, buildings and infrastructure and utility service<br />

lines – water supply, sewerage, s<strong>to</strong>rm drains, power<br />

and ICT cables. This problem leads <strong>to</strong> frequent<br />

building demolition, cuts and disruption of service<br />

lines, unmitigated re-location, delayed completion of<br />

works, and increased project costs. This problem has<br />

been witnessed in the recent past on several roads<br />

in Nairobi - Thika road, Outer Ring and Langata road.<br />

<strong>The</strong> same problem is also witnessed in on-going road<br />

construction works in the city.<br />

Road Construction works – Street-lighting posts, sewer and water<br />

supply line are cut<br />

Integrated Infrastructure Development<br />

Plans<br />

Under the Physical Planning Act (1996), all <strong>to</strong>wns<br />

and cities require the preparation of infrastructure<br />

integrated development plans in the context of the<br />

overall <strong>to</strong>wn/city integrated land use plan. A casual<br />

survey of infrastructure works confirms otherwise.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are different and numerous infrastructure<br />

providers in <strong>to</strong>wns and the development of<br />

infrastructure is not coordinated and not integrated<br />

among the various players<br />
