The Drought Monitoring System produces Integrated Drought Severity Index (IDSI) on a weekly basis by combining satellite derived information on the conditions of vegetation, temperature and rainfall datasets using long-term (15 years) record.
IDSI product was developed m a joint collaboration with World Meteorological Organizations (WMO), Global Water Partnership (GWP) and CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) led by CIAT and Water, Land and Ecosystems.
Disclamier: The drought monitor focuses on broad-scale conditions. Local condition may vary. This is an experimental product and the validation was carried out with limited field observations. Copyright 2016 International Water Management Institute (IWMI). All
