RCC Implementation in South America
In April 2011, WMO organized a Consultation Meeting on Implementation of RCCs in South America with representatives of potential RCC candidates as identified by XV-RA III. The Meeting agreed on the way forward to establish three RCCs in RA III: CIIFEN to serve as an RCC for Western South America; Brazil and French Guyana to set up an RCC-Network for Northern South America; and Argentina and Brazil to set up an RCC-Network for Southern South America. The meeting further decided to first establish appropriate governance structures involving the stakeholder countries, to guide the implementation process. Implementation plans for the demonstration phases of the RCC/RCC-networks in RA III are expected to be developed by January 2012.
