The lead of the WeMAST (Wetland Monitoring and Assessment Service for Transboundary Basins in Southern Africa) consortium, SASSCAL, met with the African Union (AU) delegation, implementing the GMES and Africa Support Programme, which is jointly funded by the AU and the European Commission. The purpose of the milestone meeting was a follow-up meeting of the midterm review in February and aimed on gauging progress on the development of the WeMAST service and adapting its workplan in line with setbacks created by the world-wide COVID‑19 pandemic, which resulted in an extension of the GMES and Africa programme of 3 months.
