About the project

CLIMWAYS is a multi-disciplinary research project that analyses institutional constraints on water resource management and urban climate change adaptation in the cities of Durban and Cape Town.

The project's main objectives are to produce and disseminate high quality knowledge about these topics; build research capacity among historically disadvantaged groups in South Africa and among women; and develop a longer term climate and water governance collaborative program between the partner institutions and the municipalities based on existing long-standing research relationships.
