Supporting climate-resilient urban planning: 10 lessons from cities in southern Africa

This brief presents key insights about ways to integrate climate information into climate change-related adaptation planning used in urban areas of sub-Saharan Africa. The authors of this brief highlight 10 lessons learned from their work to promote and support long-term resilience to the impacts of climate change in growing cities in sub-Saharan Africa. The insights stem from work conducted from 2015 to 2022 through two projects: Future Resilience for African CiTies And Lands (FRACTAL) and its successor, FRACTAL-Plus.
