ARC Member States

AU Flags

ARC is led by 35 African Union Member States responsible for setting the direction of the organisation's Disaster Risk Management research and policy, and have access ARC’s Disaster Risk Management tools services, including the Africa RiskView software, the ARC Capacity Building Programme, and ARC Ltd’s risk transfer services. There are ongoing efforts and ensure that more countries sign up to support this mechanism and endorse it as Africa's solution to the growing threats of natural disasters.

AU Member States that sign the ARC Establishment Agreement become ARC Member States and are eligible to participate in and benefit from ARC’s disaster risk management facilities, as well as contribute to the governance of ARC through the Conference of Parties.
