Participatory planning for climate compatible development in Maputo, Mozambique

This book provides ideas and methodologies for fostering and developing partnerships for climate compatible development that truly acknowledge the concerns and needs of local communities, especially those communities that host the urban poor and the most vulnerable to climate change impacts. It proposes a Participatory Action Planning methodology to organise communities, and also advances mechanisms for institutional development through partnerships. Experiences from this book suggest that helping urban citizens to build a strong identity before joining a partnership and developing dialogue with potential partners, with a strong consideration of the context, are useful strategies for establishing working partnerships for climate compatible development.
