EPIC-N is a 501(c)3 governed by a board of directors. The nonprofit ensures member programs maintain a strong voice in deciding EPIC-N priorities, while recruiting international experts to strengthen the organization.
The EPIC Africa network was established in December 2017, following a Global Adaptation Network-funded training event hosted by EPIC-N leaders. The EPIC Africa network remains closely affiliated with EPIC-N, and is supported through a network coordinator and this website. Whilst it remains an informal collective of aspiring African EPIC leaders, the aim is for the EPIC Africa network to formalise through the establishment of a constitution and board of Directors. To this end, a strategic framework document has been developed.
