Christian Aid is working across a wide range of donor-funded programmes. Below are some examples of our global resilience work and external resources.


Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) is a 3-year, DFID-funded programme that aims to help people build resilience to climate-related threats in 13 countries. Christian Aid is leading two consortiums in Ethiopia and Burkina Faso, with the aim to influence climate policies and practices at the local, national and international level.


DFID Programme Partnership Arrangements

Through the DFID Programme Partnership Arrangement scheme (PPA), the UK Government supports Christian Aid’s community resilience building work in 17 countries. Currently a 5 year programme which began in 2011, this strategic funding mechanism is enabling Christian Aid to develop, learn from and expand its work to build resilient communities in disaster, conflict and climate affected environments.


Enhancing Community Resilience Programme

Christian Aid leads a consortium of 11 partners to deliver the Enhancing Community Resilience Programme (ECRP) in Malawi, a five-year initiative working to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, reduce vulnerability and strengthen the resilience of around 300,000 people in seven districts. Running until 2016, ECRP focuses on disaster risk management, village savings and loans groups, climate smart agriculture and renewable energy. The programme is funded by UK aid, Irish Aid and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, receiving more than £10m over five years.

Linking Preparedness, Resilience & Response.

The Linking Preparedness Resilience and Response (LPRR) project is a START Network Disaster and Emergency Preparedness Programme (DEPP) funded, consortia run project aimed at improving consortium agency practices around building community resilience in fragile settings and designing humanitarian response interventions in ways which strengthen long-term community resilience. The consortium includes Christian Aid (lead), Action Aid, Concern, Help Age, King’s College London, Muslim Aid, OXFAM, Safer World and World Vision..


Dialogues for Resilience.

Dialogues for Resilience is a research initiative aimed at supporting effective dialogue between the providers of science and those who use science to make decisions in disaster and conflict affected regions. The resource site is currently supported by the King’s Centre for Integrated Research on Risk and Resilience (KCIRRR) and comprises a series of case studies of dialogue approaches identified through research.
