AURAN report on tracking fire risk in informal settlement

This is a report of the African Urban Risk Analysis Network (AURAN) project implemented by the  University of Cape Town Disaster Mitigation for Sustainable Livelihoods Programme (DiMP) to strengthen efforts to mitigate informal settlement fires, which are an increasing priority risk in the City of Cape Town. The project specifically aimed at strengthening understanding of the drivers of risk in informal settlements as well as low-income formal housing areas. It resulted in the updating of the MANDISA disaster events database.

DiMP, 2006.
