Where the Rain Falls Phase III Baseline Study

Bangladesh is frequently cited as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change (Huq and Ayers, 2007) because of its disadvantageous geographic location; flat and low-lying topography; high population density; high levels of poverty; reliance of many livelihoods on climate sensitive sectors, particularly agriculture and fisheries; and inefficient institutional aspects (CCC, 2006). Considering the above scenarios of climate change risks and as a part of initiative to address the effect of climate change, CARE Bangladesh has started implementing the project “Where the Rain Falls (WtRF III)”generously funded by Prince Albert Foundation. The project is mainly based on Community Based Adaptation (CBA) and aims at improving the resilience of targeted vulnerable and marginalized communities to the impacts of increasing variability of rainfall patterns by promoting SuPER (Sustainable, Profitable, Equitable and Resilient) agriculture approach. CARE has been implementing the WtRF project in Kurigram district since January 2014 and WtRF Phase III which started from January 2017has built on the earlier phase of the project. The WtRF Phase III project focuses on climate resilient agriculture and targets 6,500 small and marginalized farmers in 20 villages (2,500 from previous phase in 5 villages and an additional 4,000 small and marginalized farmers from additional 15 villages in Kurigram).

The exercise mapped risks, identified areas of vulnerability, and worked to understand mechanisms being used by communities to cope with adverse events. A survey was also designed for the two studied communities, identifying service shortfalls that reduced resilience to cope with both seasonal and unexpected manmade and natural disasters. [49 pages]
