The Civil Society Urban Development Platform (CSUDP) is a Kenyan Non-Governmental Organization founded in 2015 as a successor of a national coordination facility for urban Civil Society Organizations supported by Sida through the Embassy of Sweden in Nairobi. The Platform seeks to promote social inclusivity in the modern era of urbanization in Kenya through coordinated and multi-sectoral approaches to sustainable urban development.
CSUDP’s philosophy is embodied through its vision of a vibrant, dignified and secure urban living environment for all. From the platform we see beyond the hardware, we facilitate investment in people, particularly the disadvantaged, to drive change. We take care of tomorrow by motivating civic competencies at all levels for coordinated and effective engagement in equitable and just urban development.
