Project Description

Diamniadio’s rather particular physical context exposes it to climate change phenomena more than a large part of the agglomeration.

The project aims to make a tangible contribution to making Diamniadio a sustainable city by improving knowledge about vulnerability to climate change and the risks facing the city as well as recommended adaptation measures.
