With climate change increasingly affecting the urban population worldwide, too often it is slum dwellers, informal traders and residents of vulnerable settlements that bear the brunt of environmental, economic and political risks that impact cities, particularly in rapidly urbanising economies.

This video highlights how local projects, supported by Cities Alliance, in Kenya, Uganda and Bangladesh are making a difference, improving climate adaptation and resilience in informal settlements.

This feature was produced as a side event for the Climate Adaptation Summit 2021.
