Technical assistance

A technical assistance team within the Secretariat of the OACPS has been established to augment the Secretariat’s capacity to effectively monitor and coordinate ClimSA and support and assist countries, regions and in particular the participating Regional Climate Centre (RCCs) of the OACPS to implement. Strengthening scientific knowledge on climate, including research, systematic observation of the climate system and early warning systems, in a manner that informs climate services and supports decision-making is a central objective.

The technical assistance will ensure intra-regional coordination and exchange within and between the six regions of the OACPS to strengthen cooperation, collaboration and capacities of regional centers to achieve international certification in the provision of quality services.
