This meeting will be held online.
The Bureau Meeting of the African Ministerial Conference on Meteorology (AMCOMET) will virtually take place on 26 January, 2021, from 13h00 East African Time (GMT +3).
The objective of the meeting is to approve and adopt the revised AMCOMET Strategy following the Ministerial request at the Fourth Session of AMCOMET (4) held in Cairo, Egypt from 18-21 February, 2019 to the AMCOMET Secretariat and the African Union Commission (AUC). The revision was to incorporate emerging issues such as gender, research and development and private sector engagement.
The Strategy has now been revised and updated. It has also undergone validation by all the five Regional Economic Communities (RECS) and their respective Member States. What is left is for the Strategy to be considered and endorsed by the AMCOMET Bureau, the AMCOMET Ministers and relevant AU organs including the African Union's Specialised Technical Committee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Water and Environment (STC-ARDWE). It is planned that the Strategy will be submitted to the AU Heads of State and Government in 2022 for adoption.
