Mombasa opens City Lab in bid to mitigate effects of climate change

The recently launched Mombasa City Lab will help generate concrete solutions for the region’s complex urban flooding and climate adaptation challenges. The city lab was launched Friday in collaboration with the Covenant of Mayors in sub-Saharan Africa (COM SSA). It is also expected to tackle complex, cross-sectoral urban challenges by fostering collaboration among diverse stakeholders, including government, civil society, the private sector and academia.

                    This is the right time to have this lab, it is going to scale up mitigation strategies in Mombasa at this time of elnino distress and even stretch to the other towns.

                      The establishment of the Mombasa City Lab is a commendable initiative in addressing the pressing issues of urban flooding and climate adaptation in the region. By collaborating with the Covenant of Mayors in sub-Saharan Africa, the city lab demonstrates a commitment to a multi-stakeholder approach, involving government, civil society, the private sector, and academia. This collaborative effort is crucial in developing concrete solutions for the complex challenges posed by climate change. The city lab has the potential to become a hub for innovation, research, and practical strategies that can contribute significantly to mitigating the effects of climate change in Mombasa and beyond. It exemplifies a proactive response to the urgent need for sustainable and resilient urban development in the face of environmental challenges
