August 16, 2021. The ARC Group held a very robust induction for its Board members to orientate them with its mandate, mission, vision, and strategy.
The exercise provided the new Board members with sufficient information on the activities of the Group detailing progress made, ongoing smart partnerships, product diversification, and other initiatives towards assisting its Member States to better prepare, plan, and respond to natural disaster risks.
In his presentation and remarks, the Group Director-General, UN-ASG Ibrahima Cheikh Diong lauded the new Group members for their enthusiasm and strong commitment to working with ARC through providing qualitative and strategic oversight. “The success of our work as a Group depends on the quality of advise and guidance we get from our Board, and we are truly proud of the diversity, multidisciplinary skills, and expertise of the members in this regard”, said Mr. DIONG
With the successful induction of its Group Board, ARC has taken yet another great step towards building Africa’s adaptation and making the region more resilient and food secure.
