Anna Taylor, one of ACC’s Mistra Urban Futures researchers, recently participated in a workshop to co-produce a methodology for using climate science information to develop policy messages pertaining to peri-urban areas in Africa. The event was convened by START and UCT’s Climate Systems Analysis Group, with funding from CDKN, and hosted by the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. Teams from five African cities participated, namely Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, Kampala in Uganda, Lusaka in Zambia and Maputo in Mozambique. The teams from each city consisted of people working in the national meteorological services, universities and various local and national government agencies, notable urban planning and agriculture.
