The Where The Rain falls project was launched in 2011. Through field research in 8 countries, we aspired to advance understanding of the complexities of changing rainfall patterns, their effects on food security and human mobility. Building on the study results that were shared with communities and authorities, we developed community-based adaptation pilot projects. The first phases of CBA projects were implemented between 2013 to 2014. In 2016, the project is still going on in 2 countries (Thailand and India), whereas the other country offices have build on these experiences to develop new projects and programs.

Film for PolicymakersThrough the Where the Rain Falls film for policymakers, learn how poor people from around the world are facing challenging choices and seeking better options as changing rainfall patterns affect their livelihoods. Through a CARE International and United Nations University study and CARE action on the ground, “Where the Rain Falls” communities, government and civil society organizations are working together to understand rain to enable change.
To mark the end of the first phase of the Where the Rain Falls project, CARE France organized a learning event in Chiang Mai, Thailand to document the experiences from the project's community-based adaptation projects in Peru, Tanzania, India, Bangladesh and Thailand.
