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.

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. 

The Resilience Exchange presents experiences and learning from across the diverse BRACED programme. Twenty-three individual ‘stories of change’ provide insights into how resilience is being built in practice, and a report assesses key questions such as how does BRACED builds resilience? and how do we measure impact?
