Description:Students in Dr. Robert Wilson's Policy Research Project course at the LBJ School of Public Affairs present findings from field research on the capacity of local governments in Africa to respond to the impacts of climate change.

Students traveled to select African cities - including Accra, Ghana; Alexandria, Egypt; Cape Town, South Africa; Casablanca, Morocco; Dakar, Senegal; Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; Kampala, Uganda; Luanda, Angola; and Maputo, Mozambique - to conduct field research in order to identify the factors that explain the variation in capacity across different types of disaster reduction and mitigation systems and across metropolitan areas.
