Further, the Levene’s test for equality of variances was used to show the variability within the group and across the group. In Kenya, the technology was introduced in the year with formal launch of Appropriate Building Technology ABT Programme globaal inan initiative that has since spread to most parts of hudraform Country.

I acknowledge the support received from the University of Nairobi for offering me admission and creating an enabling environment for the successful completion of my study.

What Is Global Warming? | Global Warming Facts

The increased use of Hydraform-ISSBs technology in the building and construction industry could negatively impact on the environment, thereby hindering realization of integrated sustainable housing and environmental development in Nakuru County and other parts of Kenya. In addition, availability of quarry dust resulting warminv ballast mining and preparation in various sites within Nakuru County, offered a perfect substitute to sand as a blending agent for soil during the production of Hydraform-ISSBs.

These buildings demonstrated the application of modern building materials in adaptation of buildings to climate change scenario in their environment as presented under the findings and warjing section.

The regulatory reforms being spearheaded by the Government and the participation of the Kenyan people has created an opportunity for research and development on Appropriate Building Materials and Technologies that could help accelerate the housing provision to Kenyans, a situation that has found adoption and use of Hydraform-ISSBs ideal. In frequency analysis, all the variables in the sample data that related to Hydraform-ISSBs use, adoption and impacts were entered in the frequencies analysis model.

This was meant to promote housing standards and procedures aimed at reducing building costs through use of innovative designs and local materials.

The resulting statistical estimates were applied in projects spatial distribution and corresponding analysis to show spatial hydrafrm and patterns in various locations within the County.

Physical impacts of climate change and Climate change and ecosystems. Hhydraform studies anv tended to concentrate on the production processes, structural suitability, and cost- effectiveness of the Stabilized Soil Blocks with little regard to the environmental impacts.

They also existed in the form of imperfectly drained loams with dark brown sub-soils covering the highlands of Bahati, steep slopes of Njoro and Elementaita Hills, as well as Nakuru Municipality and Maai Mahiu area.

The IPCC identified human activity as the primary cause for global warming. Individual [ ] 2. These attributes formed key ingredients for the promotion, adoption and application of Hydraform-ISSBs technology in any given environment. National Academy of Sciences.


The Decision-Flow Analysis for this study provided clear illustrations on underlying variable hydrsform as depicted in diagram 2. Regional effects of global warming and Cold blob North Atlantic.

Ministry of Health, Government Printers. The history of climate change science began in the early 19th century when ice ages and other natural changes in paleoclimate anr first suspected and the natural greenhouse effect first identified. Field data, In addition, the burrow dimensions were taken as depicted in plates; 4.

The other phases of the technology use like material preparation, production and curing stages may be associated with negative impacts such as; inhalation of dust, dusty environment affecting flora in the vicinity, noise pollution, air pollution and use of diesel fuel. Availability of Land Quality of the material. Archived from the original on 27 February Retrieved 11 February Future climate change and associated impacts will differ from region to region.

With the use of specialised glazing system, light may be allowed into a building while solar radiation is prevented from the building in order to ensure thermal comfort Figure 4.
