The BRACED (Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters) programme aims to improve resilience to climate extremes in the African Sahel, East Africa and Asia by  improving the integration of disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation methods into development approaches.

 

ODI leads the BRACED Knowledge Manager which generates evidence from across the BRACED programme to inform and influence the policies and programmes of practitioners, governments and funding agencies.

The IRDR Centre for Gender and Disaster is a world leading trans-disciplinary research centre, based in the Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction at University College London (UCL). The Centre aims to bridge the gap between ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ sciences by developing awareness of, and responsiveness to, gender in the context of hazard, risk, disaster and conflict. 

The Gender and Disaster Network is an educational and advocacy project initiated during the July 1997 Natural Hazards Research and Applications Center workshop. Its stated aims are to:

  • Document and analyse women's and men's experiences before, during, and after disaster, situating gender relations in broad political, economic, historical, and cultural context

  • Work across disciplinary and organisational boundaries in support of collaborative research and applied projects

  • Foster information sharing, resource building and networking among members

  • Build and sustain an active international community of scholars and activists

  • Advocate for change in policy and practice at all levels

Oxfam Resilience Knowledge Hub

The Oxfam Resilience Knowledge Hub globally coordinates knowledge management and learning for resilience. It provides a network of advisers that can contribute and support resilience programming.

SouthSouthNorth, based in Cape Town, mobilises resources for developing countries to innovatively respond to climate change. It supports national and regional responses to climate change through policy and knowledge interventions, partnerships and collaboration; by connecting people and information.

 

CDKN's mission is to enhance the quality of life for the poorest and those most vulnerable to climate change. It does so by producing research, providing technical assistance and through knowledge-sharing and learning work in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
