Drought and Flood Mitigation Service (DFMS)

Product by Rheatech

The Ugandan Drought and Flood Mitigation Service (DFMS) provides information to national, and local, stakeholders to support informed decisions that limit risks from drought or flooding. It uses hydrological, climate and weather models combined with earth observation data to understand changes in land surface properties such as water availability and vegetation health. This is supported by ground-truth yield data collected by Ugandan partners in situ using Pictorial Evaluation Tool (PET) methodologies.
