Kibera and Surrounding Area

Kibera - one of Africa’s largest slums. Located on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya, Kibera is the home of a million residents. The water in the stream is black and full of garbage. The ground is littered with small black plastic bags filled with human waste. These plastic bags are commonly called “flying toilets” and are one of the sanitation solutions in the slum. GRID-Arendal undertook fieldwork in Nairobi for a project named Wastewater Management and Sanitation Provision in Africa, funded by the African Development Bank, The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the UN Environment. We interviewed local residents and officials about their perspectives on water and sanitation related issues.
