Stemming off the Future Resilience for African Cities and Lands (FRACTAL), this project focuses on enabling the co-production of climate risk narratives in southern Africa through connecting a network of stakeholders while developing climate risk narratives for Blantyre, Gaborone and Harare. Research undertaken in the process of developing these narratives would identify how contextual socio-economic factors of African cities influence climate sensitivities.
Climate risk narratives will be developed for the cities of Blantyre, Gaborone and Harare. The process for developing these narratives relies on workshops, surveys and interviews to explore the human factors that influence climate sensitivities and interpretation of climate information, particularly climate risk narratives.
