The current El Niño episode has been evolving since June 2015 and is now fully developed. The Uganda National Meteorological Authority (UNMA) in collaboration with the majority of international and regional climate centers predict that the 2015-16 El Niño is likely to strengthen further before the end of the year and is likely to persist to early 2016.

Based on this predisction, UNMA as part of its obligations, continues to advise several sectors on how to manage the impacts of El Niño.

The advisories to specific sectors are presented in: http://unma.go.ug/index.php/alerts/disaster-warnings
