WELCOME TO KENYA METEOROLOGICAL SOCIETY
The Kenya Meteorological Society (KMS) was registered in 1987, as a non-profit making professional/scientific society, in a bid to promote the understanding of meteorology and its applications, among other functions, in Kenya and beyond. During its short span of existence, the Society has undertaken its duties with dedication.
The Society is set to attain its goals by facilitating communication of important findings, which contribute towards the advancement of meteorological knowledge to Kenyans and the global community at large. In this regard it is the policy of the Society to encourage research in Meteorology and other related sciences; organize local and international Meteorological workshops, conferences, symposia; introduce public education; and, sensitize the public on the important aspects of Meteorology such as drought, desertification and climate change.
