Instituto Nacional de Meteorologia, INAM

Instituto Nacional de Meteorologia is the National Meteorological Service of Mozamique. The Director of INAM is the Permanent Representative of Mozambique with WMO.

Regional project 1987 - 1993

Even though it has a long established history, the Meteorological Service in Mozambique has suffered substantial deterioration in its infrastructure because of the civil unrest that existed from the 1970s until the early 1990s. The project, however, contributed to the on-going recovery plan of the Meteorological Service which is receiving special support from the Government. This has been demonstrated by the Governmentĺs decision to upgrade the status of the Meteorological Service from that of an ordinary department to that of an Institute. The project in Mozambique was ableto redress the special problems faced by the Service, in order to enable it to contribute to the economic development activities in the country.The strengthened observation network improved communications data and products for applications to help the economic recovery efforts. The projectĺs inputs have also helped to improve the quality of public weather forecasts as well as specialised forecasts for Maputo Bay for activities related to fishing.
