    Drastic action is being taken in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, with 4000 buildings set to be demolished. The reason: they were constructed on riparian land – land adjacent to the watercourses that traverse the city. In an interview with The Conversation Africa, Sean Avery discusses what is happening and why riparian areas are so vital.
