Top 10 things to do in Durban
Lonely Planet Durban
Durban is an archetypal African city and as such represents a place where climate change poses significant and ongoing challenges to sustainable development and human well-being. Against the backdrop of a population that is already vulnerable in terms of poverty, health, water and food security, the implications of climate change are likely to be dramatic. The way in which Durban has responded to these impending threats stands as an example not only to other cities in South Africa and Africa, but also to the rest of the world. Durban provides an example of what is possible in the face of numerous developmental challenges and minimal resources and as such, is increasingly being acknowledged as South Africa’s climate capital, and also as a global leader in the field of climate protection planning.

This has brought about community costs in terms of road fatalities and injuries, congestion, large capital investment,high personal transport costs and environmental degradation.
