The Way Forward: Climate Resilient Cities for Africa’s Future

Chapter
Part of the Future City book series (FUCI, volume 4)

Abstract

Urbanisation and climate change are among the major contemporary challenges for sustainable development in Africa. On this background, the overall aim of the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme project CLUVA (CLimate Change and Urban Vulnerability in Africa) has been to develop innovative approaches to vulnerability analysis and for the enhancement of urban resilience. CLUVA was unique in that it combined a top-down perspective of climate change modelling with a bottom-up perspective of vulnerability assessment; quantitative approaches from engineering sciences and qualitative approaches of social sciences; a novel multi-risk modelling methodology; strategic approaches to urban and green infrastructure planning with neighbourhood perspectives to adaptation. This chapter synthesises important results of the CLUVA project by highlighting the critical factors for urban vulnerability that were identified by the African-European research team while working with the five case study cities of Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Saint Louis (Senegal), Douala (Cameroon), Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) and Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) from 2010 to 2013. It particularly explores the future path towards climate resilient cities from diverse perspectives, suggesting a set of building blocks for Africa’s urban future.
