To a part of REACHOUT, I am the Social Media lead. I will contribute to the communication and dissemination strategy of the project.
I hope we understand cities better and how to respond to the different planning and governance challenges each stage of their resilience journey brings. When it comes to building a better future, cities face similar challenges. Their maturity and dependency pathways differ, so climate services and tools are not equally used. By understanding this better, we can provide the necessary resources to accelerate and scale up adaptation. My goal is to help them create urban policy narratives and climate stories to help mobilise internal and external stakeholders.
