This synopsis should be read in combination with the report ‘Delivering climate resilience programmes in fragile and conflict-affected contexts’ (Neaverson, Gould and Peters, 2019). The case studies in this compendium form part of a wider research project undertaken by the Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) Knowledge Manager to explore how climate resilience projects and programmes can be designed, set up and managed to be resilient themselves for more effective delivery in fragile and conflict-affected contexts (FCAC). The research project specifically focuses on operational considerations rather than more technical, programmatic ones.
The project case studies capture the experiences of four BRACED projects delivering climate resilience programming in fragile and/or conflict-affected contexts. Each case study seeks to answer two of the learning review sub-questions: ‘How has programming in FCAC affected BRACED operations?’ and ‘How have BRACED projects responded and adapted to the changing context?’
The four project-level case studies focus in depth on the specifics of BRACED project delivery within a particular context and look at the following BRACED projects:
- Improving Resilience to Climate Change in South Sudan (IRISS) – South Sudan
- The Myanmar Alliance project – Myanmar
- Scaling-Up Resilience for 1 Million People (SUR1M) – Niger and Mali
- Decentralising Climate Funds (DCF) – Mali (this project also operated in Senegal)
