The 3rd Steering Committee (CoPil)* of the AdaptWAP project was held in Niamey on April 12, 2022, in the presence of its members, representing the three relevant countries of the project (Benin, Burkina Faso and Niger).

The works of this meeting aimed to assess the progress of the project and validate the work plans as well as the new activity proposals taking into account the particular situation of the region. The roadmap indicating the main deadlines was also adopted (MR-EWS activities, concrete actions for the benefit of the populations, etc.).


The CoPil was also an opportunity to present and promote the various products of the project, which represent support instruments for the sustainable and coordinated management of the WAP complex, and particularly the climate change adaptation plan adopted by the 3 affected countries.

This meeting was extended upon OSS proposal and with the approval of the partners, to the Council of Ministers in charge of the Environment of the WAP Complex (CM/WAP), which met on April 13, in Niamey, to validate the establishment of the WAP Complex Executive Secretariat and promote the creation of national management units for the Multirisk Early Warning System MR-EWS (floods, bush fires and drought).
