BRACED is a two phase programme. In its first four year phase from August 2013 the UK will provide up to GBP 140 million from the International Climate Fund (ICF). Of this GBP 110 million will be to deliver interventions in up to 10 countries, including in the Sahel, that are at most risk of climate extremes (e.g. droughts, storms, floods and landslides), and to build the evidence on how to do this at scale to influence policy and institutional changes. This is expected to benefit up to 5 million people, especially women and children, by building their resilience to climate and weather extremes.This will be achieved by providing grants to NGOs and their partners (local government, UN agencies and private sector) to scale up proven technologies and practices at grassroots level. Selected by a set of investment criteria, NGOs and their partners would be required to demonstrate ability to achieve results on the ground, to build local and national capacity, and to build evidence on what works well and less well on adaptation and DRR.
