Building resilience to climate extremes & disasters: rapid appraisal of the management options

Abstract

Evidence on Demand carried out a rapid appraisal of the Management Options for DFID’s proposed programme Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) as an input to the Business Case. The report analysed the management functions to be performed and assessed five possible management models – use of an NGO consortium, an external funding agency, an international agency, DFID’s in-house managers, and a hybrid including several of these, to inform DFID’s thinking. A set of Desired Outcomes of the project were described and the management options rated and scored against each. Costs of each option were estimated, and a final recommendation was made to use the hybrid model, following the “Rating and Weighting” approach and matrix specified by DFID.

This report has been produced by International Development UEA for Evidence on Demand with the assistance of the UK Department for International Development (DFID) contracted through the Climate, Environment, Infrastructure and Livelihoods Professional Evidence and Applied Knowledge Services (CEIL PEAKS) programme, jointly managed by HTSPE Limited and IMC Worldwide Limited.
