Abstract:The challenge of sustainable development in an emerging Africa is how to negotiate between increasingly complex competing views and interests. This is especially relevant in the face of rising global risks. I use a case study of the ongoing construction of the LAPSSET Corridor megaproject in Kenya to highlight the complexities and intersections of competing interests. I focus on the relationship between the Government of Kenya and a transnational coalition called Save Lamu. I argue that understanding the process of development, which involves reflexivity as a central element, helps us explore the complexities and intersections. Knowing the interests of stakeholders and how they intersect helps point us towards how these interests may be balanced. The result is a precautionary approach to development which leads to sustainable development. (WorldCat).
