There is a need to evolve threshold dates for the onset of the wet and dry seasons and forecast the distributions of rainfall during these seasons. Efforts are needed to improve the reliability of climate forecast, accurately transfer climate forecasts from regional to local levels, and better train the policy-makers and producers about climate information to enhance the effectiveness of measures for drought mitigation in Indonesia.
