Chilean Drought Observatory

Reducing vulnerability to droughts and other agriculture-climate events with relevant, rapid response information for early warning purposes is the key goal of an Agroclimatic Observatory. Such a system allows decision makers and stakeholders to access reliable and up-to-date information on meteorological, hydrological, and agricultural conditions, and provides a historical reference of drought vulnerability as well as forecasts for coming seasons. G-WADI in collaboration with many other institutions helped develop the Chilean Drought Observatory, which can be accessed at

The observatory has sections on El Niño, La Niña and the Southern Oscillation; Drought Monitor; Historical Drought Frequencies; Vulnerability Atlas; Forecsts and Alerts.
