dc.description.abstract This paper argues that learning is essential for cities to become resilient to challenges. The Future Resilience for African CiTies And Lands (FRACTAL) project is profiled. Following FRACTAL’s city-to-city learning approach of sharing good practices, knowledge and experiences framed around transdisciplinary research, the study cities of Harare, Lusaka, Windhoek and Durban conducted city learning exchange visits between 2017 and 2018. FRACTAL contributes towards climate resilient development by providing relevant climate information for decision-making at the city regional scale in southern Africa. Transferable lessons and practices included effective water conservation and waste management and the use of public-private partnerships. en
