ProSus #3 – Building resilience in southern African cities

The third issue of START’s ProSus Magazine features reflections, research and stories from the Future Resilience for African Cities and Lands (FRACTAL) program.

Departing from the conventional way that climate information is produced and disseminated, FRACTAL strongly emphasized knowledge co-production that integrated science with decision-making in nine southern African cities.

The articles featured in this ProSus magazine demonstrate FRACTAL’s novel philosophy and approach. The stories from cities and partners provide concrete examples of how FRACTAL has advanced understanding of, and engagement around, climate risks in urban areas. The relationships forged through FRACTAL are an enduring legacy of this effort.

Published twice a year, ProSus explores ideas and solutions for a more sustainable future. It showcases the voices of researchers, practitioners and thinkers, and perspectives that build bridges between science and society, between local and global realities.
