Harina Devi Khatri and her husband Bishnu are vegetable farmers with three children who live in Hirapur Doti district in Nepal. Through the BRACED Anukulan project they are now linked to markets and services through their local Rural Collection Centre, and are applying new methods of cultivating their crops. With these new approaches, Harina is growing more vegetables and has increased her household income: previously she earned £153 annually from potatoes only, but with the expanded vegetable production her income has increased to £538. The extra income allows Harina to spend more on her children’s education and nutrition, invest more back into her vegetable farm and save for the future.
 
Their story is one of twenty-three individual ‘stories of change’ presented in the Resilience Exchange, providing insights into how resilience is being built in practice.

The climate is changing rapidly. With limited resources and time to build resilience, we must learn what works, how it is working, and how this can be scaled up, if we’re serious about supporting the people who are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and disasters.

The collective ambition of the 120+ organisations that make up BRACED (Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters) tries to do exactly that. Part way through our journey, the BRACED Resilience Exchange shares what we’ve learned, presenting experiences and learning, assessing key questions such as how does BRACED build resilience? and how do we measure impact? and challenging what we think we know.

We welcome comments that advance the story through relevant opinion, anecdotes, links and data.
