Plan International - Baseline Study: BRACED Myanmar Alliance Project - 2015

Project Description:

The Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) Myanmar aimed to support community resilience building in 153 target communities in 7 Townships in 3 diverse climatic zones - the Central Dry Zone, Coastal Zone and Hilly Areas - where vulnerable groups were increasingly exposed to extreme climate events including:

i) cyclones/strong winds

ii) floods/storm surges

iii) intense rains

iv) extreme temperatures

v) drought

MKE conducted the baseline study to provide baseline data for the project log-frame, specifically in relation to International Climate Fund (ICF) Key Performance Indicator, relating to the number of people with increased resilience due to BRACED support. The baseline also provided the basis from which to answer the project evaluation questions (as well as OECD-DAC criteria and cross-cutting concerns).
