Research methods for understanding and supporting decision processes in African Cities

This working paper reviews 12 decision-making methods to explore how different approaches may lead key people working in cities and surrounding urban areas of Southern Africa to make better-informed decisions about adapting to climate change. The review covers both decision-making process methods - that is, those that describe and provide insights about empirical cases of decision-making and decision-making support methods - those that analyse normative dimensions of how a decision could be made.
