Abstract:Limited evidence exists of how climate change has been integrated in urban planning in Southern Africa. This collective volume explores the urban climate change nexus linking asset (poverty) adaptation, climate change science and food security through several case study cities, including Cape Town, George and //Khara Hais (South Africa), Lusaka (Zambia), Maputo (Mozambique), Mombasa (Kenya) and Harare (Zimbabwe). The results shed light on how this nexus might be explored from different perspectives, both theoretical and practical, in order to plan for a more resilient future. Chapters: Understanding the terrain: the climate change, assets and food security nexus in Southern African cities (Bruce Frayne, Caroline Moser and Gina Ziervogel); Urban food security and climate change: a system of flows (Jane Battersby); Urban household vulnerability to food security and climate change: experiences from urban areas of Zimbabwe (Godfrey Tawodzera); Mobility and migration: the missing link in climate change and asset adaptation (Belinda Dodson); Impacts of climate change on migration and food security in Maputo, Mozambique (InÍs Raimundo and Bruce Frayne); Asset adaptation and urban food security in a changing climate: a case study of Kalingalinga and Linda Compounds in Lusaka, Zambia (Danny Simatele); The Ithemba farmers' story of climate and food security adaptation in Cape Town, South Africa: housing versus food? (Gareth Haysom); Climate change and food insecurity in Mombasa: institutional and policy gaps (Alfred Omenya, Grace Lubaale and Collins Miruka); A spatial planning perspective on climate change, asset adaptation and food security: the case of two South African cities (Willemien Faling); Constructing the climate change-asset adaptation-food security nexus for pro-poor urban development (Bruce Frayne, Caroline Moser and Gina Ziervogel).
