Of all climate-related disasters, droughts contribute over 90% of environmental, health and social negative impacts on people living in the Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).  These recurring, and now more frequent, and severe droughts have continuously and systematically weakened the livelihoods of the people living in this Region. The frequency, magnitude and duration of droughts are on the rise globally, thanks to events such as climate change, global warming and population growth.  The uniqueness of the problem in SSA however is to be found in the inadequacy and ineffectiveness of the Region’s preparedness to these disasters. 

Accurate, timely and relevant weather forecast information is one way of enabling a community to anticipate and prepare for droughts and hence minimize the negative impacts. Though it may be argued that the science of weather forecasting has come of age especially in the West, the results of such forecasts are still alien to farmers in SSA most of whom live in the rural areas where they are still struggling with illiteracy and poor communication infrastructures.

Australian Parks

Cradle Park Banner


This is a basic site about the beautiful and fascinating parks of Australia.

On this site you can read all about my travels to different parks, see photos, and find links to park websites.

This sample site is an example of using the core of Joomla! to create a basic website, whether a "brochure site,"  a personal blog, or as a way to present information on a topic you are interested in.

Read more about the site in the About Parks module.



  • Park Blog

    Here is where I will blog all about the parks of Australia.

    You can make a blog on your website by creating a category to write your blog posts in (this one is called Park Blog). Each blog post will be an article in that category. If you make a category blog menu link with 1 column it will look like this page, if you display the category description then this part is displayed.

    To enhance your blog you may want to add extensions for comments, interacting with social network sites, tagging, and keeping in contact with your readers. You can also enable the syndication that is included in Joomla (in the Integration Options set Show Feed Link to Show and make sure to display the syndication module on the page).

  • Photo Gallery

    These are my photos from parks I have visited (I didn't take them, they are all from Wikimedia Commons).

    This shows you how to make a simple image gallery using articles in com_content.

    In each article put a thumbnail image before a "readmore" and the full size image after it. Set the article to Show Intro Text: Hide.
