Coastal cities in South Africa such as Cape Town are experiencing a range of coastal pressures consistent with a warming climate. This includes evidence of receding coastlines, shifting wind regimes and more intense storms. The coalescence of socio-political and climate-change-driven pressures requires a governance approach that is adaptive and responsive, but there are impediments that are preventing the required shifts to match these dynamic and mounting pressures. Darryl Colenbrander investigates the governance of coastal risk and vulnerability in developing city-scale contexts.
