Adapting to a changing climate in Southern Africa

This short film captures the key messages and debates emerging from the first Southern Africa Adaptation Colloquium, held in November 2013 and co-hosted by Mistra Urban Futures Cape Town platform’s Climate Change Think Tank, a partnership within the Knowledge Transfer Programme. Members of the partnership include The University of Cape Town’s African Climate and Development Initiative (ACDI), the Adaptation Network, SANBI, the National Implementing Entity for the Adaptation Fund, 
the National Research Foundation, and the Western Cape Government. The film was produced to make available the discussions to audiences that weren’t able to attend the Colloquium — particularly people working with local government in African cities.
