Abstract: "For many of the world's poorest people, rainfall variability is a major impediment to their livelihoods. The inability to manage unpredictable changes in rainfall, and consequently runoff, is a key contributing factor to food insecurity and poverty. Frequently, periods with too much water are followed by periods with too little, and intermittent water scarcity is often a direct consequence of rainfall variability."
