dc.description.abstract Planning of human settlements on the Angolan coast should incorporate flooding risks and impacts of soil erosion. “Gaps" in data from 40 years’ war, and loss of 30 years of meteorological information, coincide with the recent period of accelerated climate change. Development Workshop’s research team has been recovering and analysing historical rainfall data from old Angolan archives, libraries in Lisbon and London, and digitizing the information. Large coastal cities in Angola are located at the mouth of river basins, making settlements at particularly high risk of local climatic changes. The presentation includes maps drawn from new databases. en
