AMCOMET, a joint initiative of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the African Union Commission, was established in April 2010 during the First Conference of Ministers Responsible for Meteorology in Africa, where the ministers adopted the Nairobi Ministerial Declaration. AMCOMET is a high-level mechanism for the development of meteorology and its applications in Africa and is a body endorsed by African Heads of State and Government. It is the inter-governmental authority on meteorology, which advises African Heads of State on all policy matters related to the provision, access and use of weather and climate services.
AMCOMET membership includes all African Ministers Responsible for Meteorology. Ministerial decisions taken during AMCOMET Sessions are submitted to the African Union Executive Council and the African Union Summit of Heads of State and Government for endorsement
