Project Led by Chelina Odbert MUP ’07 Named Finalist for WRI Ross Center Prize for Cities
The Kibera Public Space Project (KPSP) has been named a finalist in the WRI Ross Center Prize for Cities. Convened by the World Resources Institute, The Prize for Cities is the premier global award celebrating and spotlighting transformative urban change. KPSP was selected as one of 5 finalists among 262 submissions from 54 countries. KPSP is designed and planned by Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI), a non-profit design and community development firm co-founded and led by Chelina Odbert MUP ’07. A network of 11 public spaces across the informal settlement of Kibera, in Kenya, KPSP creates much-needed public space linked with other benefits, including economic development, public health, and water management.
