The ReSCOPE Programme is run by a Board that is made up of one member representing the lead organization in each participating country. The Board appoints a five member Management Committee that meets every six months. The chair and the vice chair of the Board are also the chair and the vice chair of the Management Committee. The host country member serves the function of Treasurer in both the Management Committee and the Board. In addition two Trustees from the host country serve as signatories to the ReSCOPE accounts and are members of the Programme’s Finance Committee. The day to day running of the ReSCOPE Programme is the responsibility of a secretariat that is headed by the Regional Coordinator.
Each country elects or appoints a lead organization implementing Permaculture in school and college communities in which they are working.
