“I would like to recognise the fact that this workshop will likely contribute to the installation of 12 automatic rain gauges right throughout the country and four automatic weather stations that of course will provide support from now on.”
The Permanent Secretary also said the National Government is committed to seeing the successful coverage of these projects.
“The government through the Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, Disaster Management and Meteorology is committed to ensuring that the coverage in terms of early warnings for climate and weather related events are upgraded.”
