VIDEO REPLAY & PRESENTATION - BOOSTING AFRICAN CITIES' RESILIENCE TO CLIMATE CHANGE: THE ROLE OF GREEN SPACES
African cities face two key transitions: urbanisation and climate change. How can African cities urbanise resiliently and sustainably, and ultimately – be liveable? Green spaces are one lever action at the disposal of cities, which are often overlooked and underappreciated in the competition for land when urbanising.
What are the dynamics between green spaces and urbanisation in African cities? What is the potential for green spaces to boost resilience to extreme weather, like heat waves, and cities’ sustainability, such as pollution regulation?
On 5 July, Brilé Anderson from the OECD SWAC Directorate and Dr. Jorge Patiño from Peak Urban at the University of Medellin, along with other experts, discussed these trends, the potential role that green spaces can play in the future of African cities, and what lessons can be learned from other parts of the globe.
The presentation was be based on the forthcoming OECD study on green spaces: Boosting resilience in African cities: Role of green spaces.
