URBAN CLIMATE INFORMATION PLATFORM (U-CLIP)

Climate change projections point towards increasingly devastating heatwaves occurring in Africa in the decades to come. In cities, exposure to extreme heat is exacerbated by the phenomenon of urban heat islands and poor housing conditions, inducing health and other impacts, and affecting vulnerable population groups in particular.

Yet, today, the formulation of effective climate resilience measures is strongly hampered by a lack of suitable and accessible urban climate information. The ambition of u-CLIP is to meet this data need, aiming to support the formulation of adequate resilience measures by policy makers and other stakeholders.
