Morocco hosts the Parties’ conference, the COP22, for the second time from 7 to 18 November 2016
The COP22 is the largest single event ever hosted by Morocco. It is also an opportunity to make civil society more aware of the fact that the fight against global warming is a collective issue. The steering committee has launched a campaign to present the challenges of climate change to citizens and to mobilise them as the event approaches.
From Agreement to Action
Initiatives and commitments, in particular in the private sector, already started on 18 and 19 July in Tangier. Almost 3,000 experts attended the Medcop, the convention of climate stakeholders in the Mediterranean, as a preamble to the COP22. The convention was closed by the adoption of a governance charter for the Mediterranean, which recommends the creation of an “organised framework for dialogue between the Mediterranean regions”.
