The climate change debate has traditionally evoked images of vulnerable rural populations; the phrase conjures pictures of parched earth and the isolated smallholder farmers dependent on it. But in a world where half of the population is urban, the paradigm is changing. Cities represent not only hotspots for vulnerability to changing weather patterns, but also key centres for innovative response. Climate change and cities are inextricably linked, and nowhere is this truer than in Africa – one of the world’s fastest growing regions.
