Understanding the extent to which BRACED projects are able to strengthen the resilience of the households, communities and organisations they work with is critical to ensuring that successful approaches are scaled and replicated. The overall purpose of this evaluation is to determine to what extent household-level resilience has increased as a result of BRACED interventions.

This report presents the results of the BRACED Impact Evaluation of the SUR1M project in Niger. The SUR1M (Scaling-Up Resilience to Climate Extremes for over 1 Million People in the Niger River Basin) project was implemented by Catholic Relief Services (CRS) from 2015 until the end of 2017 with a series of local and international partners. It aims to strengthen the resilience of the local population to climate extremes. 

This report was produced in conjunction with the paper 'Measuring changes in household resilience as a result of BRACED activities in Myanmar.'
