The GreenBook MetroView profiles the climate risk and vulnerability of metropolitan cities in South Africa and proposes actions to mitigate the impacts of climate change and build long-term resilience:

The Climate Risk Profile Tool provides quantified, spatial information up to a ward level on current and 2050 climate projections, the likelihood of climate hazards occurring, exposure, and vulnerabilities. Combined, these components determine climate risk zones within cities. Where available, the Climate Actions Tool features customised adaptation and mitigation actions to be mainstreamed into metropolitan plans and strategies to reduce exposure and vulnerabilities and build long-term resilience.
MetroView profiles exist for the following cities:
