The project targets rain-dependent farming families in two hazard-prone areas in the Mahaweli Basin. The project is designed to address specific vulnerabilities faced by rain-dependent farmers; strategies to overcome dry season food and income security; introduction of diversified income sources to broad-base risk, improved water storage and irrigation to overcome uncertainty of rainfall, improved soil quality and fertility for increased production, and timely, quality agriculture advice and extension.

The overall objective of the project is to secure community livelihoods and food security against climate change-induced rainfall variability leading to longer droughts and more intense rainfall. This project directly addresses these climate-induced impacts through two project components:
1. Developing household food security and build resilient livelihoods for rain-fed farming households
2. Building institutional capacity in village, local, regional service delivery to reduce risks associated with climate-induced rainfall variability
