Kenya Sustainable Cities - We Have 10 years to Get this VERY right

October 9, 2018

The recent IPCC report explains how we need to cut global emissions to a greater extent and radically faster than previously anticipated. 

 

A summary of what this means for Kenya and Africa can be found in the public statement by CSTI Board Member, Dr Evans Kituyi

Let us make international headlines by coming together with effective solutions and reducing emissions before the deadline, even by greater than required. 

 

Here are the highlights and pathways in pictures:

 

 

Think of Circular Bio-Economy and Biotechnology replacements in each of the SDGs

 

 

Scenario P1 is the preferred state. Scenario P2 gives us a solid long term adaptation pathway

 CSTI - What inspires us:

 

We are a multidisciplinary team of researchers and practitioners who believe that the scientific and technological knowledge we develop is a legacy trust we create for the community.

Some people are artists, others give inspirational speeches.  We deliver understanding that can be adapted to solve ecological and industrial problems.  The eagerness with which this understanding is received and used is what inspires us to do our work.

We  must treat the earth well. It was not given to us by our parents, it is loaned to us by our children.
