Nairobi - Interesting neighbours (golfcourses and slums)
Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Trends in development and urbanization show that the gaps between the rich and the poor is generally increasing world wide. This satellite image over Nairobi, Kenya highlights the location of golf courses and informal settlements (e.g. slums, squatters) and they are, in a few cases, next door to each other - highlighting the contrasts.
