African Climate & Development Initiative (ACDI)

Overview

ACDI Logo

South Africa, with the rest of the African continent, has an imperative to improve human wellbeing, but within the constraints of the need for low-carbon development and mounting impacts of climate variability and change. The ACDI has been formed to engage with these challenges, through interdisciplinary, innovative research and teaching that draws on the intellectual capital across a wide range of disciplines at UCT. Our vision is an interdisciplinary research hub that brings together academics with NGOs, business and government in a knowledge factory that co-produces and tests new insights, evidence and innovations that will help to solve Africa's climate and development challenges.
