Zimbabwe Department of Meteorology

Zimbabwe Department of Meteorology is the National Meteorological Service of Zimbabwe. The Director of the Department is the Permanent Representative of Zimbabwe with WMO.

The Zimbabwe Department of Meteorology is one of the strongest in the region, with good support from the Government and from other projects.The Finland/SATCC/WMO projectĺs contribution will enable the Department to provide services to one of the most sophisticated economies in the region, based on agriculture, manufacturing and industry. Drought and water shortage in general limit the performance of agriculture, so, for the country to remain one of the worldĺs biggest producers of maize, closer co-operation between agricultural and meteorological services is essential in order to harmonise weather and agricultural practices. The project thus went a long way towards enabling the Department to meet this challenge.
