LIDC Upcoming event

he UKRI-funded ‘Addressing Livestock-derived Antimicrobial pollution in the Nairobi River in Kenya’ project has the pleasure of inviting you to an engineering sandpit on Wednesday 17 March from 7:00am to midday (UK time). Please see agenda below for more information about each session. Participants are not required to attend the whole event, but can select individual sessions. The event will be hosted by the University of Nairobi. The event is free to attend and open to everyone with an interest in the topic, but registration for online attendance is required.

The interdisciplinary sandpit will bring together Kenyan and international policy makers with experts in engineering, public health, toxicology, environmental and social science. The event will facilitate interactive peer discussions and knowledge exchange to explore local expertise for construction, installation, testing and maintenance of an innovative filter made from materials that are readily available in Kenya. We will explore solutions to enable their effective application to the local context.

‘Addressing Livestock-derived Antimicrobial pollution in the Nairobi River in Kenya’ is an interdisciplinary project lead by Principal Investigator Professor Claire Heffernan and the Royal Veterinary College, in collaboration with the University of Nairobi. Together with its partners –  KMFRI, Vetworks EA, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, City University of London and University of York – the project aims to reduce livestock-sourced antimicrobial contamination in Nairobi River. More information about the project is available on UKRI’s website
