Abstract

This paper investigates the need for a generic technique to be applied in the assessment of resilience-related projects in slums – particularly for localised infrastructure at a community level – and proposes a novel framework tool for this purpose. The paper outlines the development of the framework tool, as well as its pilot testing on the Kenya Slum Upgrading Programme in Kibera, Nairobi. The evaluation demonstrates an improvement in asset base, capacities and external resources for the community post intervention. The lack of land tenure was identified to be a key weakness and factor which impacted resilience of the local residents.
