    Author(s): Tigabu Muche

    Climate has always been dynamic affecting natural systems through the consequence of its variability and change. Agriculture is the most vulnerable and sensitive sector that is seriously affected by the impact of manifested through rainfall variability and recurrent drought. In dry land semiarid areas of Ethiopia, including in the study areas, farmers inhabiting the area experience extreme temporal and spatial variability of rainfall in cropping season with frequent and longer dry spells. This makes them vulnerable to the risk of Meteorological Drought (MD). Thus, in order to adapt and/or mitigate the impact of MD, MD assessment has to form one dimension of research to be done whereas the use of MD indices and different soft wares provides wide scope in drought risk detection and mapping. Consequently, this study was conducted in Eastern Harerghe and Shinile Zones with the objective o.. Read More»
