Resilience Results: BRACED-X Final Evaluation Synthesis

Resilience is the ability to anticipate, avoid, plan for, cope with, recover from and adapt to (climate-related) shocks and stresses. This lays the foundations for transformation and transformative change - fundamental changes to systems, institutions and the ‘rules of the game’.

Building Resilience to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) is the biggest global effort to build resilience locally, in highly vulnerable places. After three years of implementation, the programme was extended by a further 18 months (BRACED-X) to build on results and work towards sustained outcomes. We have synthesised the evidence from the final evaluations of nine projects, looking across a range of contexts, to understand how resilience is being built on the ground.
