of how people in your country are being affected on a daily basis – and
how they are coming up with innovative solutions.

individuals and organisations within these cities are also implementing
extraordinary initiatives to fight climate change. And some of these
projects are working.
Questions to answer in your story: Which
scalable project is serving as an innovative model for tackling climate
change in your city? How does it work? What data or other evidence can you find that proves this initiative is working? How can it be replicable and sustainable in other African cities?

visualization of climate change issues on different sectors or topics
relevant to your story; i.e. energy, agriculture, food security, water,

maps and visualizations. However, please feel free to integrate any
other sources of credible data.
