Marrakech Conference Carries Momentum of Climate Action

19 November 2016: The Marrakech Climate Change Conference took place after the historically rapid entry into force of the Paris Agreement, which was agreed at the conclusion of the 2015 Paris Climate Change Conference. Many looked to the 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 22) to maintain the momentum established at COP 21. Although the COP 22 agenda focused on technical work, making it difficult to show significant progress, participants believed that the Conference rose to the challenge and created a sense of urgency and accountability for the development of a rulebook that will make the Paris Agreement implementable from day one.

The two-week meeting, which took place in Marrakech, Morocco, included COP 22 to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the 12th session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 12), and the the first session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 1). Three subsidiary bodies also met: the 45th sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA 45) and Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI 45), and the second part of the first session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA 1-2).
