Africa Partner Coordination Mechanism
The Africa Development Partner Coordination Mechanism (APCM) for Weather, Water and Climate Services provides a platform for the systematic exchange of project and programme information to enhance collaboration among development partners and harmonize interventions at the regional and national levels.
The APCM is expected to facilitate the alignment of development partners’ objectives with national and regional identified priorities and needs, critical to ensure ownership of the interventions and maximise impact and sustainability of investments. The framework for engagement includes four key components:
- Informal annual roundtable
- Special Programme Focus (Peer to peer review session of upcoming projects and programmes)
- Ad-hoc focus groups on specific topics (Public Private Engagement, Socio-economic Benefits/Sustainability, Agriculture, REAP WG on EWS)
- WMO Online community platform for information gathering and sharing and partner collaboration and communication
