Through our research of hundreds of families across eight different countries, we aspire to better understand the complexities of rainfall patterns and their effects on food security and human mobility. Our goal: to communicate knowledge, lower risk and advise on food security and migration options to improve the lives of vulnerable people and communities in developing countries around the world.

New Film for Policy MakersThrough the Where the Rain Falls film for policy makers, learn how poor people from around the world are facing challenging choices and seeking better solutions as rain fall patterns affect their livelihoods. Through a CARE International and United Nations University study and programme -- 'Where the Rain Falls' -- communities, government and organisations are working together to understand rain to enable change.
Where the Rain Falls Featured at Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington DC
On Tuesday, May 7, Kevin Henry, project coordinator for Where the Rain Falls, spoke on a panel at a Woodrow Wilson Center event, " The Farmer's Dilemma: Climate Change, Food Security, and Human Mobility." Mr. Henry presented the Where the Rain Falls research findings and how CARE is leveraging the research in the design of community-based adaptation projects.
The event generated discussion about the challenges smallholder farmers face and how developed and developing governments and partners like CARE can support smallholder farmers and their families.
