Abstract: The science and dynamics underlying drought is complex, yet understandable if approached carefully using scientific method. In this paper, scientific perspective was applied to explain and compare drought indices in Somalia and Lake Chad Basin (LCB). Geographic information system (GIS) was used to analyze similarities and differences of temporal and spatial drought data in both regions.
Maqaalkan waxaa si cilmiyeysan ugu xusan isu barbardhig lagu samaynaayo abaaraha ka jira Soomaaliya iyo Chad, waxyaabaha ay isaga egyihiin iyo waxyaabaha ay ku kala duwanyihiin.
La scienza e la dinamica sottostanti la siccità sono complesse, ma comunque comprensibili se vi si approccia attentamente con un metodo scientifico. In questo articolo, è stata applicata la prospettiva scientifica per spiegare e confrontare gli indici di siccità in Somalia e nel bacino del Chad. E' stato utilizzato il Sistema informativo territoriale (GIS) per analizzare le similitudini e le differenze dei dati temporali e spaziali di siccità in entrambe le regioni.
