Running under the motto “Understand the Earth System to Build Resilience against Recurring Extreme Events in the SADC Region”, the Southern Africa Regional Climate Forum (SARCOF-23) is being preceded by a technical forum (PRE-SARCOF ), started Monday 19.

According to a note from the organization that Angop had access this Tuesday, the event aims at reaching consensus in the analysis of the results and preparing the forecast for the whole southern region in general, which is later refined by experts at the respective country level.

This will culminate in the preparation of the Seasonal Forecast for the rainy season with the highest incidence between October and April in the Southern African bloc, including Angola, which has experienced drought in the southern part since September 2018.

The SARCOF - Southern Africa Regional Climate Forum, hosted by the Southern Africa Climate Center - brings together annually technical experts from Angola, South Africa, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Comoros, E-swatini (former Swaziland) , Lesotho and Madagascar.

Experts from Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe also attend this Southern African Development Community thematic meeting.
