Governance

The 6 continental members of RIPESS designate two representatives each (with the exception of Oceania with 1 representant and Asia with 3 representants according to the subregions) to the RIPESS Board of Directors, taking gender balance into consideration. Since 2020 its model of coordination is based on a participatory and multi-continental coordination of three elected Members. They are jointly responsible for the implementation of the action plan, together with the Secretariat support. There are also two seats on the Board that are reserved for international sectorial organisations (present on at least 3 continents).
