Routes to Resilience: Insights from BRACED to BRACED-X
After four years of implementation, this report presents a synthesis of the Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) project annual reports, and evidence from four deep dives, from the 18-month extension, referred to as BRACED-X.
Resilience results: BRACED Extension Final Evaluation

The governance of Nepal's flood early warning system: opportunities under federalism
This working paper looks at the institutional mechanisms for assessing, monitoring, communicating and responding to flood risk information and warnings across three river basins in eastern and western Nepal, and identifies opportunities for enhancing these services under the new federal structure.
Country Experiences with Decentralised Climate Finance: Early Outcomes
This Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters Programme (BRACED) research study explores whether public investments made by government-led climate funds in Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali and Senegal are building climate resilience that responds to locally determined priorities.
Linking financial services and social protection for resilience: lessons from Kenya
This brief aims to inform policy by helping fill knowledge gaps on both the potential and the limitations of developing links between cash-based assistance and financial inclusion interventions to build the resilience of households to climate-related shocks and stresses
Damage to land feeds migration and conflict - UN official

Water for livestock in the drylands: The case of Wajir County
This technical brief gives guidance on issues to consider in the context of water development in the pastoral drylands, with examples from Wajir County, Kenya.
Improving the governance of rural water points in Wajir County
Despite large investments in water development and the decentralisation of water service delivery, Wajir County residents continue to face problems of water scarcity.
Water governance and development in the drylands: The case of Wajir County, Kenya
In the drylands, water is key to the sustainable management of pasture. Too commonly governments and development planners have taken over-simplified views of water resource development, prioritising the delivery of water resources over the impact this has on the complex interactions between the land, environment and livelihood systems, and their links to wider political processes. Pastoralism is often the main economy and livelihood option in dryland areas, and ensuring there is sufficient water for livestock is an important consideration that must be integrated with that of sustainable rangeland management. The study uses Wajir County as a case study to understand the challenges related to water governance and development in the drylands.
Building resilience for all: intersectional approaches for reducing vulnerability to natural hazards and climate change: findings from Nepal
This note provides insights from the report 'Building resilience for all: intersectional approaches for reducing vulnerability to natural hazards in Nepal and Kenya', which highlights challenges and opportunities for understanding intersecting inequalities and delivering effective intersectional approaches that help build resilience to natural hazards and climate change. This note presents findings from the Nepal study.
