Crime in Nairobi: Results of a City wide Victim Survey; Safer Cities Series 2
This publication is part of the Safer Nairobi project, funded by UNDP, which is working towards a city-wide crime prevention strategy.
This survey is a diagnosis on both crime itself and insecurity surrounding crime in Nairobi. A fundamental requirement of a prevention-oriented approach to crime is the availability of extensive and reliable data and to this end the UN-HABITAT Victimisation Survey of Nairobi is the most comprehensive undertaken to date, being administered in two discrete phases between May and August 2001.
Throughout the study over 10,500 ordinary residents of Nairobi contributed their effort by offering opinions and attitudes to a number of different issues concerning safety and crime.
