Projects implemented

  • Recent rainfall data for South Eastern Ethiopia show trends of overall declines in rainfall between March and September from 1980 to the present. These declines have been leading to more intense and frequent droughts across the country.

    The goal of the Programme is to strengthen the operational resources of National Meteorological Services to further provide weather/climate information and services to rural farmers and strengthen early warning systems for weather and climate risk management in the agricultural sector.

  • The overarching goal for the programme “GFCS Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction in Africa” is to provide timely and accurate climate and weather services for disaster risk reduction and increased resilience in agriculture.
