Climate Change Adaptation in Africa Program
The Climate Change Adaptation in Africa program sought to improve the ability of African countries to adapt to climate change in ways that benefit the most vulnerable. ICLEI Africa implemented a project under the programme entitled `Sub-Saharan African Cities: A Five City Network to Pioneer Climate Adaptation through participatory Research and Local Action'. The project sought to address the knowledge, resource, capacity and networking gaps by strengthening the ability to plan for, and adapt to, impacts associated with climate change. The aim of the project was to increase adaptive capacity of decisions makers, key local government stakeholders and community members in five cities in southern Africa. In fulfilment of its mandate to work with local and sub-national governments within Sub-Saharan countries towards sustainable development, ICLEI Africa selected five coastal urban cities as pioneers in the project. These were Walvis Bay in Namibia, Cape Town in South Africa, Maputo in Mozambique, Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and Port Louis in Mauritius. Please see the Resources page for the outcomes, papers and reports delivered during the course of the 5 City Network project implemented by ICLEI Africa.
Sustainable Urban Resilient Water for Africa: Developing Local Climate Solutions Project
The five year European Commission funded project ‘Sustainable Urban Resilient Water for Africa: Developing Local Climate Solutions’ aims to contribute to sustainable climate change (CC) resilient urban water planning mechanisms and action based on international benchmarking within LAs and ensuring multiplier effects to the region. It will focus on the nexus of climate change and water, in particular droughts and floods, while identifying and implementing priority adaptation measures to assist the most vulnerable sectors in the participating local authorities. It is being implemented by ICLEI Africa in the following cities: Francistown in Botswana, Blantyre in Malawi, Walvs Bay in Namibia, Nelson Mandela Bay in South Africa, Lusaka in Zambia, and Bulawayo in Zimbabwe.
