Climate Information Portal (CIP) developed by CSAG
CIP is a web interface that integrates two important information sources into one easy to use interface. The first important source is a climate database that stores and manages queries to a large suite of observational climate data as well as projections of future climate. The second important source of information is an extensive collection of guidance documentation that facilitates the best use of the climate data, its interpretation and, importantly, resultant actions. The philosophy guiding CIP is that data is not information and as such only has value when well interpreted and correctly used or applied to appropriate problems.
WeADAPT developed by SEI
weADAPT is a collaborative platform for climate adaptation which draws together a wide range of partners to share experience, tools and case studies to create a dynamic community and knowledge base for adaptation.
Africa’s New Urban Climate Maputo photo story by SEI
This photo story was produced during the Maputo Learning Lab in March 2017. It provides an overview of climate-related challenges being faced in Maputo, as well as FRACTAL approaches that are being implemented to develop climate knowledge that will contribute to the resilient development of the city.
Understanding adaptation terminology in a city context e-learning tool developed by the City of Cape Town and CSAG
This e-learning tool aims to deepen understanding of climate change adaptation in a city context. It introduces concepts such as adaptive capacity, mitigation, adaptation deficit and their relation to adaptation. It also explores some of the complicated facets of climate change adaptation. It is an output of the Small Opportunity Grant (SOG) project designed within FRACTAL: Developing a common language for climate change in the city of Cape Town.
Spilling the beans resilience game developed by CSAG and the City of Cape Town, CSAG and RCRCCC
Spilling the beans is a game that explores the term resilience as it relates to climate change. Through this interactive activity players come to understand two contrasting interpretations of the same term. This tool is an output of the Small Opportunity Grant (SOG) project designed within FRACTAL: Developing a common language for climate change in the city of Cape Town.
The Wheel of Context language tool developed by the City of Cape Town and CSAG
This is a tool that helps unpack multiple meanings of the same term. Any term can be explored. It is to be used in a multi-disciplinary setting allowing participants from various backgrounds to understand how climate-related terminology is applied in other sectors or disciplines.
