COP22 starts in Marrakech

This Monday (7), in Marrakech, the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 22) began. Until November 18th, representatives of 195 member states of the United Nations (UN), companies and civil society will discuss the rules of the Paris Agreement and how these rules will be defined and regulated by the countries.

At the opening, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Morocco, Salageddine Mezouar, was elected to chair the Conference and declared that this “must be the COP of action, the COP of concrete”. He also pointed out that this will be an opportunity for developing countries that have been largely affected by climate change to have a voice.

The rapid entry into force of the Paris Agreement, approved in December 2015 during COP21, brings new challenges to this year's Conference and puts up for discussion a series of important actions, such as the launch of the regulatory body Conference of the Parties as a meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA).
