In response to major challenges related to the delivery of weather and climate services in Africa, the African Ministerial Conference on Meteorology (AMCOMET) was initiated as a permanent forum where African ministers convene every two years to discuss matters related to the development of meteorology and its applications and its contribution to the socio-economic development in Africa.  

AMCOMET was established in April 2010 during the First Conference of Ministers Responsible for Meteorology in Africa,  where the ministers adopted the Nairobi Ministerial Declaration.
