The Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) programme is a three-year, £110 million programme funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID). The programme launched in January 2015. It supported over 140 organisations in 15 consortia to implement 15 projects across 13 countries in East Africa, the Sahel and Asia. These consortia include local government and civil society organisations, research organisations and the private sector.

BRACED sought to increase resilience to drought and floods for targeted communities, especially women and girls, while also contributing to Evidence-based learning related to developing climate change resilience in complex and conflict-prone environments. After just over three years in operation, the project came to an end on 30th June 2018. This edition of Knowledge Matters summarises the main lessons which the BRACED project in South Sudan generated.
