Successful urban places are based predominately on streets and the connected street life. Streets serve as democratic, open public space and as platforms for economic and social development. Therefore, streets play a fundamental role for the public life in cities, and particularly in slums where open space is scarce.
This report explores the role and potentials of streets in slum upgrading, using the street upgrading project in the Korogocho slum in Nairobi, Kenya as a case study. It focuses on the experiences and perceptions of the residents in Korogocho, and the changes on the ground.
