dc.description.abstractGeographers and environmental scientists have marveled at the nature of cities round the world and the rate at which environmental degradation is eroding the beauty of the earth. The provision of basic urban services has not kept pace with the rapid urban population growth. This study was designed to investigate environmental sanitation in two sprawling residential estates in Nairobi. The findings indicated that although the communities had each pulled their efforts and resources together to improve the environmental conditions and participate effectively in educating the residents on environmental health measures, the problem of sanitation is far from being solved. It concludes that the problem of environmental sanitation need to be tackled by combined efforts of both the residents and the government to avoid any possible outbreak of environmentally related diseases.en_US
