Gender and resilience: from theory to practice

This working paper reflects on progress in linking gender equality and resilience within development projects. It builds on three case studies of Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) projects in Myanmar, Burkina Faso and Uganda to reflect further on the realities, challenges and successes of early implementation of their activities. The three case studies have been written by practitioners and reflect on their own gender-sensitive practices. Their experiences are compared in this paper with the aim to inform other organisations implementing resilience-based programmes on the lessons and promising practices to mainstream gender equality. The accompanying case studies are presented separately
