Resources now available: Urban governance – entry points for climate science

 

The Future Climate for Africa Programme and FRACTAL research team are pleased to share the presentation and discussion documents from the 15 April 2016 webcast event:

Understanding Urban Governance: Entry Points for Climate Science

This seminar presented a critical discussion on approaches for understanding the governance structures that shape medium-term development decisions taken in various African contexts and at various scales (e.g. city region, catchment, and national). More specifically, the session aimed to stimulate engagement and debate around these approaches to understanding urban governance and decision-making pathways, and finding entry points for climate information to inform development decisions at the city-region scale. The aim was to sharpen the theoretical underpinnings and the practical application of these approaches within the Future Climate for Africa programme.
