Durban’s Resilience Journey
Durban has become a global leader in climate change adaptation despite being the poorest metropolitan area in South Africa.
The city’s informal neighborhoods and poverty undermine resilience and social cohesion. Durban is actively exploring ways to adapt institutions, systems, and processes in order to facilitate integrated, innovative, and flexible planning. This approach will help build a foundation for a more resilient economy, government, and society.
