CapaCITY through Co-creation: Comparing transformational processes of capability development for urban resilience

Knowledge co-creation and shared learning is at the very heart of this session which will demonstrate how multi-actor processes can tangibly deliver enhancements in urban capacity building. This will include a new approach of co-production for urban resilience prepared by the Adaptation Research Alliance (ARA) through in-depth consultation and engagement with over 100 organisations from across the global South. It also includes a unique approach to bringing different city stakeholders together for tackling climate hazard events in informal settlements in two Southern African cities (Beira and Durban) undertaken by the INACCT project. Finally, Represa will showcase their inclusive approach to improving in-country capacity in multi-hazard impact-based forecasting and community-level early warning communication by equipping vulnerable communities, development actors, local authorities and decision-makers at the national level.
