How COPE is managed

COPE is managed by a secretariat at KEPHIS and University of Nairobi. KEPHIS and UoN have a Memorandum of Understanding on this.

Policy issues are determined by an advisory board with representatives from a range of African and International organizations:

  • 3 African National Plant protection Organizations (NPPOS) including KEPHIS
  • University of Nairobi (UoN)
  • Inter-African Phytosanitary Council (IAPSC) of the African Union
  • Secretariat of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC)
  • Netherlands Plant Protection Service (NPPS)
  • Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Regional Office for Africa
  • Horticultural Council of Africa (HCA)
  • CAB International (CABI).

Additional members of the Advisory Board can be admitted, so please contact the Secretariat if your organization wishes to be considered
