Future Cities Africa Outputs

 
The Future Cities Africa programme produced three main types of outputs: A feasibility study, research reports, and innovative studies and toolkits.

 


Feasibility Study

 As part of Future Cities Africa, all participating cities carried out Rapid City Resilience Assessments (RCRAs) to identify their resilience challenges and to prioritise areas for action. The Feasibility Study synthesizes all of the RCRAs and an overview of the state of urbanisation in Africa, pointing out key challenges and entry points for achieving inclusive and resilient urban growth.

Research Reports

These reports comprise demand-driven research focused on improving the evidence base to enable African cities fulfil their potential despite climate, environment and resource challenges. The themes are guided by the Future Cities Africa Normative Framework and prioritised by the participating cities through their RCRAs.

Innovative Studies and Toolkits

These are new areas of research being carried out to complement the research prioritised through the RCRAs and to serve as toolkits for cities.
