Brace II Brief             

BRACE II is a two and half year program that aims to address immediate food insecurity to avert hunger and leverage sustainable positive change in community food security and livelihoods. BRACE II is supporting interventions based on the approach known as ‘Food for Work/Assets’ or ‘Cash for Work/Assets’ in which vulnerable households receive cash or food (the delivery choice is dependent on the status of local markets) in return for work on livelihoods/productive assets that improves their resilience against climate shocks and food insecurity.

 

BRACE II program is centered on four main objectives:

§  Address immediate hunger gaps (through conditional cash/food assistance)

§  Improve longer-term food security (through addressing some of the underlying causes of food insecurity and malnutrition by supporting the creation of community assets and improving skills and knowledge)

§  Increase capacity to absorb, anticipate and adapt to climate variability and extremes
