The 5th Meeting of the Parties to AEWA (France, May 2012) decided that Sub-regional Focal Point (SrFP) Coordinators should be elected from among the AEWA National Focal Points (NFPs) in each African sub-region (Resolution 5.9). The AEWA Sub-regional Focal Point Coordinators are responsible for guiding and motivating the implementation of the AEWA Plan of Action for Africa 2012-2018 (equally adopted by Resolution 5.9) in their respective sub-region. They will be supported by the other AEWA National Focal Points as well as the UNEP/AEWA Secretariat, the Technical Support Unit (TSU) offered by the Government of France, and other relevant partners.

In 2013, the following AEWA Sub-regional Focal Point Coordinators for the five African sub-regions were elected:
