Building resilience to climate change

Ethiopia and Burkina Faso are struggling with climate change. Droughts, floods and high temperatures are destroying people’s lives. Discover how our programme is helping these communities adapt to life in the most fragile of environments.

From 2014-2018, the BRACED programme worked with communities in high-risk locations in Ethiopia and Burkina Faso to promote resilience in the face of increasingly erratic weather patterns and climate shocks.

Delivering the knowledge and resources they need to anticipate weather events and to better adapt and protect their livelihoods.
