The Kenya Alliance of Resident Associations in partnership with the Center for Sustainable Urban Development of Columbia University has organized a stakeholders forum on "Safer Streets for All by Design:

Policy Dialogue on Complete Streets and Urban Guidelines" 

Nairobi with high rates of traffic deaths needs to join the global movement to invest in designing safer streets that are friendly to all users including pedestrians and cyclists with special attention to vulnerable population such as children, elderly and the disabled. Resources exist that can be adapted and applied to Kenya such as Safer by Design, Complete Streets and Share the Road. The aim of this forum is to foster dialogue between citizens, design experts and policymakers on what urban guidelines Nairobi needs for safer, more inclusive or "complete" streets. Participants will help agree on a road map and plan of action towards safer streets.

We are pleased to invite you to the forum to be held on Wednesday, 15th June 2016 from 8.30am to 11.30am at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Kenya Road, Upper Hill, Nairobi. Please confirm your attendance via return mail or phone call as soon as possible and not later than close of business 13th June 2016, to enable us reserve your space. As always, we look forward to hosting you and to your active participation. Thank you.
