COP 22 in Marrakech
A 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) was held in Marrakech, Morocco in November 2016.
COP22 took over from a COP21 in which significant progress was made. It sought to implement the various axes set out in the Paris Agreement, in particular those relating to multi-billion-dollar and multi-million-dollar support measures for clean technologies, capacity-building to Climate action plans, and initiatives to enhance food security and water supply in developing countries and responsiveness to gender issues.

The COP of the Action
At the same time, governments have set the 2018 deadline for completing the Paris Operationalization Regulations to ensure confidence, cooperation and success over the years and decades ahead.
Businesses, investors, cities and local governments have also made new commitments to climate change, in addition to the thousands already announced upstream and during the climate conference in Paris last year.
Several countries, including Canada, Germany, Mexico and the United States, have announced their ambitious climate strategies by 2050, in line with the Paris Agreemnt long-term objective of achieving climate neutrality and a low-emission world in the second half of the century.
The President of the 22nd Conference, Mr. Salaheddine Mezouar, presented this new era of implementation and action for climate and sustainable development in the Marrakech Proclamation of Action.
