Where the Rain Falls is a three-year programme of research, advocacy, and adaptation activities on changing weather patterns, hunger and human mobility.
Where the Rain Falls aims to enable a range of stakeholders, including global, national and local policy-makers and southern civil society organisations, to better understand and effectively address the relationship between changing weather patterns, food security, social inequalities, and human mobility, in addition to empowering these stakeholders to influence policies, plans and practical interventions at an international, national, and local level.
The field research phase in eight countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America was completed in 2012, with findings launched at the United Nations' Climate Change Conference (known as UNFCCC COP18) in Doha. Results have subsequently been shared at events in France, the U.S., Bangladesh (CBA7), and seven research countries. Building on the results of the research, and with support from the AXA Group and the Prince Albert Foundation, community-based adaptation projects have been designed and are now being implemented in collaboration with communities in Bangladesh, Thailand, Peru, India and Tanzania to make an immediate contribution toward reducing their vulnerability to worsening agro-climatic risks.
