Building Resilient Cities in Africa: Exploring Investment Challenges for Climate Adaptation

The "Building Resilient Cities in Africa" Event, organized jointly by the World Bank/GFDRR's City Resilience Program and the Sciences Po Urban School, Paris, aims to discuss these challenges and assist in accelerating the funding of projects focused on urban resilience and climate change adaptation.
