When examining the construction industry the focus has been on enterprises as little attention has been paid to the labour force, about which often very little is known.
This paper makes a start in redressing this imbalance. It presents the findings of a study of construction labour in Nairobi, Kenya. This is one of four studies of construction labour in the developing world. The focus of them all is 'informal labour' in the construction sector.
