Abstract

 

More than half of the world’s population are projected to live in the urban areas by 2020 and this requires that the cities remain sustainable. The sustainability challenges in most urban areas have been recorded to be environmental, social, economic and technological. Sustainability of the cities will require sustainable technologies of which Urban and Peri-urban Agriculture (UPA) is a major contributory factor. The technology requires improved pedagogical factors (technology transfer methods and technology transfer agents) for dissemination and implementation strategies in order to acquire sustainable urban development. The understanding of the prediction of the contribution of these factors to sustainability is of importance. The purpose of this study is therefore to investigate how predictions of pedagogical factors can influence the sustainability of UPA in Dagoretti, Kasarani and Njiru districts of Nairobi County in Kenya. The study will utilize a descriptive survey method of ex-post facto approach. The population will consist of all UPA farmers in the three districts.
