Find out about recent research on how climate information is brought to bear on decision-making in southern African cities. Development of sustainable cities needs to be based on robust climate information while also involving local communities.
This article establishes the basis and sets the direction for future knowledge (co)production and planning work in relation to the adaptation and climate resilience aspects of navigating a ‘Just Transition’ in South Africa.
My background is climate science, climate modeling and climate systems analysis. However my training is computer science and my current focus is the development of tools to enable a succesful translation of climate science data into useful, robust, information that can be applied by a variety of specialists in the field of vulnerability, adaptation and mitigation.
