Uganda and the neigbouring countries should brace themselves for drier conditions for the months of January and February.
“Drier than usual conditions expected over central to south-western Kenya, southern Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, and Tanzania,” stated ICPAC in its latest weather update. “The rest of the region is generally dry during this season.”
ICPAC is a Climate Center accredited by the World Meteorological Organisation that provides Climate Services to 11 East African Countries. The services offered by ICPAC aim at creating resilience in a region deeply affected by climate change and extreme weather.
ICPAC operates under the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), which is a regional body to which Uganda subscribes as a member.
