The South Asia Drought Monitoring System (SADMS), established in 2014, is a weekly map of drought conditions that is produced and maintained at the International Water Management Institute (IWMI). Numerous drought indices - including the Integrated Drought Severity Index, Standardized Precipitation Index, and Soil Moisture Index - have been developed to provide advanced drought monitoring and assessment information for various purposes. In tandem, these indices not only paint an accurate picture of any particular drought episode, but provide invaluable decision-making tools.

Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI), 2001 - 2014
