Green City

This research project will introduce a pilot project of planting trees in a city located in the East of Africa, a region which suffers successive droughts and increased desertification. Through the use of consultative meetings with the city residents, different levels of the government, business community, religious and traditional leaders, research institutions, women’s groups and members of the civil society organizations, this project shall aim to identify the most effective way of planting trees in the city keeping in mind all the existing challenges. Through this process, the group will arrive at new knowledge and understanding and it will pave the way for more work in this area. We aim to make the project a springboard for more comprehensive thinking about the city’s sustainability as a city.
