The overall objective of the study was "to contribute to the body of knowledge on climate change in Nairobi’s informal settlements and opportunities, provide knowledge on climate change adaptation strategies that have worked elsewhere and create a wareness that informs policy".

This study found that there is a very high population density along the stretches of the rivers running through the three slums, and that this is one primary reason why flood impacts are severe within the slums. Significant extreme events of rainfall have been found in the four stations that best capture the rainfall situation within the three slums in this study .
