Adaptive social protection and urban resilience: Developments in cities of Mozambique and Madagascar

In face of recurrent climate disasters, urban populations of countries in southern Africa are facing several challenges in preparing for, coping with and adapting to shocks. Southern Africa cities have experienced rapid urban growth in recent decades with governments having generally lacked national urbanization strategies and financial resources to invest in more resilient urban spaces. Recent developments in terms of adaptative social protection and urban preparedness were discussed in this Webinar by representatives from Mozambique and Madagascar. The webinar focused on the experiences of Pemba and Antanarivo and facilitated an interactive discussion between representatives of the two cities, aiming to promote a learning opportunity from the exchange.
