Maputo, Mozambique: Climate Change Assessment
The Maputo Climate Change Assessment is based on the proposed Framework for Urban Climate Risk Assessment developed by the Fifth Urban Research Symposium. The climate risk assessment framework focuses on how cities are affected by climate change as opposed to how they contribute to climate change, and thus adaptation rather than mitigation is highlighted.
The framework analyses climate risk from three interconnected vectors – hazards, vulnerability and adaptive capacities. The Maputo summary is based on the report titled “Climate Change Impacts in Urban Areas of Mozambique, A Pilot Initiative in Maputo City: Preliminary Assessment and Proposed Implementation Strategy”, an initial output of the city’s activities under the Cities and Climate Change Initiative.
