Managing water in the urban-rural interface for climate change resilient cities

URAdapt aims to reduce the vulnerabilities of Accra (Ghana) and Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) to climate change through improved and integrated urban water management. The project places the cities within their broader basin contexts, thereby focusing the research on urban-rural connectivity. URAdapt brings together climate change and water management experts, decision-makers and representatives of vulnerable communities to collectively design adaptation strategies for the water-use sectors in the two cities. Read more…

URAdapt is supported by the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) programme. This programme is jointly funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID). Read more…

URAdapt is a 30-month project that will run between 2009 and 2012. URAdapt builds on multi-stakeholder participation, and welcomes partnerships with other institutions.
