Climate change poses the threat of extreme weather events that, in turn, create uncertainties in rainfall: too much or too little of it, or rain coming at the wrong time, can worsen the productivity of rice farming in rainfed areas. 

The Climate Change Adaptation in Rainfed Rice Areas (CCARA) project aims to improve the livelihood of farmers in these areas under current and future climate conditions by helping enhance or stabilize yield.
