How can cycles of risk accumulation in African cities be broken in ways that also enhance local and city-wide development? This book addresses this question by drawing on the experience of researchers, policy makers and community organisers working in African cities.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change held a global conference on Cities and Climate Change in Edmonton, 5-7 March 2018.  This was a high-level opportunity for exchange between city majors and planners, climate scientists and urban researchers to map out some priorities for the IPCC as it commences planning for the 6th Assessment Review.

The Urban ARK programme hosted a session at this year’s RGS-IBG Annual International Conference titled ‘Understanding everyday risks through methodological innovations’.

Urban Africa Risk Knowledge (Urban ARK) is a three year research and capacity building programme funded by the UK Department for International Development and the Economic and Social Research Council.
