About the Knowledge Manager

The role of the Knowledge Manager is to ensure BRACED is contributing to a sustained and transformational impact on people’s resilience to climate extremes beyond the communities directly supported by funded projects. It does this through generating evidence and learning on resilience from across the BRACED programme to inform and influence the policies and programmes of practitioners, governments and funding agencies.

Evidence from across the BRACED portfolio and beyond is gathered through evaluations at different levels, thematic research, and original learning approaches. BRACED Implementing Partners will be supported to increase the impact of their projects through integrating ongoing learning into their approach, evidence will be shared with practitioners to benefit wider programming and fed in to policy dialogues to inform national policies and institutions. The Knowledge Manager is run by a consortium of six organisation, listed below.

This guide details more information about the BRACED Knowledge Manager and the various learning tools it uses to generate and share knowledge on what works and what doesn't in terms of building resilience to climate extremes and disasters.
