Urban Gestalt and Social Vulnerability: A Case Study of Kampala, Uganda

Abstract : The concept of the urban resilience nexus encompasses various sectors of the urban dynamics and aims for a better understanding of linkages and interplays. This paper looks at these interrelations, mainly of water in the field of flooding-related risk exposures, the environment, and provision of basic services in Kampala and how they are-in combination with the exposure to climate change-related risks, varying levels of social vulnerability as well as infrastructure-and socioeconomic sensitivity-unequally distributed in the city and stress the already most marginalised groups further, with the objective to provide a foundation for better policy interventions.
