Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has called on participants in the International Conference on Population (ICPD 25) to explore avenues for partnerships in key sectors of the economy.

While addressing the over 1000 participants at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), the governor noted that international partnerships remain key in giving solutions to the challenges that come with population increase.

Sonko said that the conference provides the right opportunity for the national government and the county government to seek reliable and meaningful partnerships that will improve on the city’s development program.

“Nairobi has grown in population and the increase is on a daily basis and this means more challenges that need right solutions. We are ready for any partnership that will help improve the livelihood of our people,” Sonko said.

The governor hailed the support Nairobi has received from the World Bank and state agencies especially in infrastructure development and the health sector.

“In the last 15 years, Nairobi has experienced massive infrastructure development and with the advent of devolution in 2013, our road network has expanded,”

Improved investment in the environment and the housing sector will also be of great help according to governor Sonko, who noted that Nairobi’s population must achieve proper leaving standards as envisioned in Kenya’s vision 2030.

The conference will see key stakeholders in urban development and populations matters discuss modern solutions to challenges that come with rising population in fast rising cities like Nairobi.

Governor Sonko said that the biggest challenge Nairobi has for now is offering real time solutions to the problems face by the 70% of its population that stays in informal settlement.

“This population is key in driving our economic agenda but we have to consistently invest in proper housing so that we do not see mushrooming of more slums,”

President Uhuru Kenyatta who officially opened the conference said that the national government will continue working closely with the county government especially in the housing and transport sectors.

“Our determination to make Nairobi the greatest city remains on course and this is why we have strong working programs in conjunction with the county government,”

The President said that Nairobi must also open up working partnerships with Neighboring counties like Kiambu ,Kajiado and Machakos which are key in offering solutions to the rising population in the capital city.
