Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED)

Building capacity of people in Ethiopia and Burkina Faso to find transformational solutions to climate variability and disasters by climate forecasting, behavioural change and sharing skills & technology.

We will consolidate and scale up two tested methodologies (DFID/CA) for climate adaptation and building resilience, incorporating lessons and new partners and innovations. We found a major barrier to sustained change is the lack of access to appropriate and timely information and the space to challenge behavioural norms over time. Supporting local Meteorological Services and media (radio) we will co-produce reliable, regular and user friendly climate forecasting and resilience programming tailored for at risk communities, particularly women and girls, establish participatory listening groups and work with them to develop practical solutions for transformation change to climate variability and disasters.
