Forum on ‘Urbanization and Street Vendors’, September 15th 2016
The IFRA Nairobi and its partners, would like to thank all the participants of the Forum ‘Urbanization and street vendors’. This conference was held at the Alliance Française of Nairobi on the 15th of September 2016. This event allowed the meeting of the different stakeholders, such as Street Vendors/Hawkers, MSE Associations representatives, public representatives, academics and researchers. Many topics regarding that issue were discussed, such as the political representation of the street traders, the social and the economics implications of those activities, and the urban planning issues related to these major phenomena. The IFRA team hopes the presentations and the discussions that have been held this day helped the different actors to have a better understanding of this issue, and will allow a deeper dialogue.
