Polish Title

Aglomeracja a park narodowy. Trudna relacja w warunkach afrykańskich – przypadek Nairobi i Parku Narodowego Nairobi

Abstract

The article discusses selected relations between the agglomeration of Nairobi and the functioning of the Nairobi National Park located within its borders. The close attention was paid to the socio-economic and spatial development of Nairobi, which exerts pressure on the ecosystem of the park. The spatial development (sprawl) of the city and blocking the migration corridors of mammals leading to the areas outside the park were listed among the main factors of anthropopression. The city development needs raise the question about the future of the Nairobi NP, which in fact is strictly dependent on the political decisions on national level.

Polish Abstract

W artykule omówiono wybrane relacje między rozwojem aglomeracji Nairobi a funkcjonowaniem położonego w jej granicach Parku Narodowego Nairobi. Zwrócono szczególną uwagę na rozwój społeczno-ekonomiczny i przestrzenny Nairobi, który wywiera coraz silniejszą presję na ekosystem parku. Wśród głównych czynników antropopresji wymieniono przestrzenne rozlewanie się (sprawl) miasta oraz blokowanie korytarzy migracji ssaków na tereny poza parkiem. Potrzeby rozwojowe miasta stawiają pod znakiem zapytania przyszłość PN Nairobi, która w znacznym stopniu jest uzależniona od decyzji politycznych władz krajowych.
