Building Climate Resilience: Walvis Bay
A Handbook for Walvis Bay Municipality, Namibia

ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability’s mission is to build and serve a worldwide movement of local governments to achieve tangible improvements in global sustainability through cumulative local actions. The Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) program seeks to improve the ability of African countries to adapt to climate change in ways that benefit the most vulnerable. Funded by the UK’s Department for International Development, the program supports African researchers’ efforts to help communities adapt to the effects of climate change. Originally planned as a five-year initiative, the CCAA program was extended to March 31, 2012. The program has funded 46 research and capacity-building projects in 33 African countries. A wealth of new knowledge on adaptation is emerging and being shared with those who will most directly benefit. CCAA’s support for climate change initiatives aims to help Africans create better, more informed adaptation policies and plans. Some of the results CCAA grantees are achieving can be found here (access to technical reports, research papers, policy briefs, and more).
