IIAM, Mozambique's Institute of Agricultural Research, is part of the Ministry for Agriculture of Mozambique. It is mainly involved in disaster management activities through the provision of important baseline data sets. This includes a national soil map as well as information on land suitability for crops. A strong link exists between FEWS NET and IIAM/DNSA where the required data is provided for the early warning system.
IIAM maintains also a large network of hydro-meteorological stations (~50% of the national stations).
