J.K. Njihia of the Drought Monitoring Centre, Kenya, made a presentation on monitoring activities on drought in Nairobi and Harare carried out by centres that were established in 1989. He said the centres serve drought-stricken countries in the region. The centres provide information needed on agricultural production, weather outlooks, meteorological conditions, drought severity, conditions and impact of the climate, thus providing the necessary tools for early warning. He said bulletins on the centres were available and that visits could be arranged.
