Planning and implementing resilient basic service delivery systems on the ground can be challenging. This report explores how the Building Resilience and Adaption to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) Knowledge Manager in collaboration with two BRACED implementing partners developed a Climate resilient planning toolkit to guide staff through this process. 

Key messages

  • Basic service delivery is critical to community resilience to climate extremes and disasters. People’s ability to absorb, anticipate and adapt is enabled through their access to basic services, such as health, water supply, sanitation and education.
  • Tools already exist to increase the resilience of service delivery systems, but there has been no in-depth exploration of ways to apply systems thinking to basic service delivery.
  • To address this gap, the BRACED programme has developed a toolkit that supports users to identify vulnerabilities along the service delivery chain and to reflect on the best ways to increase resilience from both a component and a systems perspective.
