Dr Katharine Vincent and Ms Tracy Cull are currently in Durban for the Cities at Risk workshop, convened by START, ICSU and the new Future Earth research programme and hosted by the City of Durban/eThekwini Municipality. Attended by scientists, policy-makers and practitioners from across the African continent, the workshop intends to build on the experiences of START and its partners on urban vulnerability and adaptation in Asia and Africa to co-design a plan for short-, medium- and long-term research and capacity building in urban vulnerability and resilience on the African continent. Katharine will make a presentation on "Current and potential ramifications of climate variability and change in African cities", whilst Tracy will speak on "Gender aspects of urban vulnerability and resilience".
