REGIONAL CLIMATE CENTER NETWORK RA I


    Introduction
    Regional Association I (Africa) has been pursuing the establishment of Regional Climate Centres (RCCs), as per recommendations of Executive Council and Commission for Climatology (Resolution 4 (EC-LXI) and Resolution 5 (CCl-XV) respectively) and as per the designation criteria established by WMO.
    RCCs are Centres of Excellence that assist WMO Members in a given region to deliver better climate services and products including regional long-range forecasts, and to strengthen their capacity to meet national climate information needs.
    Each country will participate in this Network and will contribute or lead in the performance of the respective RCC functions for the entire North African region.
    The RA I TT on RCCs Meeting, mentioned above, unanimously agreed that the NMHSs of Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia will work together to implement a RCC-Network for North Africa. Each country will participate in this Network and will contribute or lead in the performance of the respective RCC functions for the entire North African region as per details in the table below.
