The report is published as part of the project development phase of the Building Resilience Without Borders in the Sahel (BRWB) project delivered by CARE, RBM, SNV and TREE AID under the Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) programme funded by DFID. The BRWB project aims to support vulnerable women and men in Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger to adapt to climate extremes.
The report argues that building climate resilience requires context-specific solutions. The project therefore uses CVCA as a critical first step to engage local stakeholders in dialogue around climate risks, vulnerability and existing adaptive capacity, and to inform prioritisation of activities in particular at community and commune levels. This report presents case studies of findings from a CVCA process in communes in Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger and demonstrates how these findings will be used to ensure that the BRWB project design is relevant and appropriate for the particular context of the Sahel and the specific areas targeted by the project.
