Kibera, in Nairobi, is one of the largest slums in Sub-Saharan Africa. In 2004 the Government of Kenya started a pilot project of “slum upgrading”, aimed at identifying effective and replicable solutions to the problem of housing for the informal settlements. But the theory seems to clash against the practice, whereby the project reproduces old and generally inadequate approches, through a totally exogenous top-down intervention which raises many doubts and perplexities. - (NF)
