Action Research on Rainfall, Hunger and Human Mobility

Through field research in eight countries, national and international advocacy efforts, and community-based interventions, we aspire to advance understanding of the complexities of changing rainfall patterns, their effects on food security and human mobility, and promising community-based adaptation strategies. Our goal: to communicate knowledge, lower risk and advise on food security and migration options to improve the lives of vulnerable people in developing countries.
