The BRACED project in South SudanResearch through the BRACED project has uncovered a number of findings about climate change impacts in South Sudan.There is an extensive knowledge of drought- and flood-resistant crops and farming practices at the local level, and that women are most affected by a changing climate given their dependence on natural resources.The research uncovered a number of findings. Climate change and conflict are poorly correlated in South Sudan. However, the complex dual impacts of climate and conflict are hard to unpick and combined with the fact that many communities believe that flood and drought is God-sent means facilitating community-based adaptation is a challenge.The report identifies that working together for improved land tenure and the management of shared natural resources may offer opportunities for improved climate resilience, peace dividends and conflict resolution.
