Douala

The Littoral zone of Douala, characterised by lowlands, has a physiography allowing a large urban spatial growth. It is fed mainly by the River Wouri, with a maze of creeks and lagoons about 50km from the Atlantic Ocean, with its largest surface extent north of Bonaberi, to the north west of metropolitan Douala. The extremely faint slopes of the geomorphic features are easily inundated from sea incursions, which impact would be worsened by rising sea level. Douala is the most densely populated area of the entire Cameroon coastal zone.
Expected activities will include scenarios of sea level rise and flooding and relative vulnerability of transportation system.
