REACH - Informing more effective humanitarian action

THE BRACE PROJECT
The “Building Resilience through Asset Creation and Enhancement” (BRACE) programme provides food and cash transfers to households, while building skills, physical assets and knowledge – with the aim of strengthening household and community resilience. The programme is implemented through the World Food Programme (WFP) and Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) partners with a range of Food For Asset (FFA) activities across three states in South Sudan – Northern and Western Bahr el Ghazal and Warrap. An Impact Evaluation will be conducted of BRACE to evaluate the impact of its activities on food security and resilience, by comparing households and communities that participate in FFA with those that do not. The evaluation is employing two parallel methods to first establish a baseline against which impact will be assessed: (1) a quasi-experimental approach, implemented by IMPACT initiatives, where data is predominantly collected through household surveys; and (2) the Household Economy Analysis (HEA) approach, implemented by the Food Economy Group (FEG), where focus group discussions is the main mode of data collection. The HEA establishes baseline parameters for wealth according to livelihood zones that are applied to the household level data gathered during the quasi-experimental component, where these parameters allow for comparison between poorer and wealthier households, while controlling for difference in livelihoods opportunities across the States where BRACE is implemented.
