Peri-Urban Resilient Ecosystems (PURE)

The Peri-Urban Resilient Ecosystems (PURE) is a research project which addresses the challenge of representative climate resilient urban strategies in dryland Windhoek, Namibia, as a means to enhance future health, wellbeing and economic development. The project aims to apply an innovative values-based scenario tool to develop urban policy informed by multiple stakeholder value systems (e.g. municipal authorities, urban planners, marginalised and informal communities).
