This working paper reflects on progress in linking gender equality and resilience within development projects. It examines how non-government organisations (NGOs) who were funded under the BRACED programme have integrated gender dimensions of resilience to climate change and disasters in the design of their project activities and builds on three case studies in Myanmar, Burkina Faso and Uganda. The three case studies have been written by practitioners to reflect further on the realities, challenges and successes of early implementation of their activities. 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 working paper and accompanying case studies are also available in French.
