Chinese Government Donates Weather Equipment to Zimbabwe

Environment, Water and Climate Minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri last week commissioned weather equipment worth $2 million donated by the Chinese government.

Minister Muchinguri-Kashiri said the donation showed good relations between China and Zimbabwe.

"On behalf of the Government of Zimbabwe, I would like to extend our appreciation to the Government of the People's Republic of China for extending such a generous donation to capacitate under resourced departments in particular the Meteorological Services Department," she said.

"This donation comes at an opportune time when the demand for weather and climate information has become unprecedented due to a rapidly changing weather and climate. Our weather has become more extreme, with dry spells becoming droughts and rainy events turning into floods.
