In the eastern locations, communities perceive intermittent rainfall during the monsoons, marked with fairly long dry days in between rains, and heavy downpours during rainy days. It aims to help users understand the role of advocacy in increasing demand for evaluation, and develop operational strategies to promote demand for evaluation services.

The elderly were assigned history, with special emphasis on problems relating to food security; women focused on the seasonal calendar and the daily work routine; and young people produced a map of the sector showing community development achievements.
