About Future Cities Africa
The Future Cities Africa (FCA) project was initiated by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and is currently facilitated by the Cities Alliance. It aims to identify more effective ways to make cities work for the poor, with a focus on resilience and economic growth. Through Future Cities Africa, the Cities Alliance supports over 20 cities in four African countries (Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique and Uganda) to anticipate and minimise future challenges in terms of climate, environment and natural resources – essentially giving them the diagnostic and tools to future proof themselves to become inclusive, resilient and have growing economies.
