Measuring changes in household resilience as a result of BRACED activities in Myanmar

The three-year, £110 million UK Department for International Development (DFID)-funded Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) programme aims to build the resilience of up to 5 million vulnerable people against climate extremes and disasters. It was launched in January 2015 and supports over 120 organisations in 15 consortia across 13 countries in East Africa, the Sahel and Asia.

Understanding the extent to which these 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 Knowledge Manager-led Impact Evaluation of the BRACED Myanmar Alliance project and is aimed at those interested in resilience measurement from government and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), academia and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) practitioners, as well as funders and commissioners of evaluations. It is also intended for other Implementing Partners (IPs) within the BRACED programme that may be considering similar approaches for future resilience-strengthening projects under or outside of BRACED.
