On the 10-11 July 2018, over 15 climate scientists from African Regional Climate Centres (RCCs) and National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) met to review a study report on the application of WMO resolution 40 on climate data sharing standards and protocols in Africa. The study and expert group meeting (EGM) were facilitated by the African Climate Policy Centre (ACPC) with the support of the Weather and Climate Information Services for Africa (WISER) programme.

The objectives of the data sharing study were to i) review the application of the resolution; ii) identify best practices and success stories; iii) highlight barriers to data sharing; and iv) provide recommendations to promote use of standards to support CIS uptake in the African continent.
