3.       Developing East African common position towards the World Urban Social Forum and Habitat III to be held in Quito, Ecuador.

4.       Developing and agreeing on an action plan for strengthening country IAI antennae in East Africa

5.       Mobilizing people to push for an alternative Forum in Quito, Ecuador in October 2016

6.       Developing Solidarity Campaigns against forceful evictions in East Africa 

7.       The International Tribunal on Evictions and explore possibilities of a regional Tribunal on evictions

8.       Having the IAI Nairobi 2016 Meeting as WSF Preparation Forum and Extended Activity

9.       Eviction Case Studies from Nairobi and Garissa in Kenya and Dar-es-salaam in Tanzania

10.    Laws Governing Evictions with a focus of Kenya
