Navigate all the essential information to participate in person or virtually at the Marrakech Conference
At the Marrakech Climate Change Conference - November 2016 (7-18 November), nations of the world will continue their work on strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, with the central focus placed on enhancing ambition, promoting implementation and providing support.
Marrakech also marks a turning point because the landmark Paris Climate Change Agreement will enter into force during the conference.
Strengthening action on mitigation and adaptation by all Parties before 2020, governments will make concerted efforts in Marrakech to support domestic action that will give effect to nationally determined contributions, combined with collaborative initiatives as part of an intensified Global Climate Action with non-state actors.
At the Marrakech Conference, countries around the world will also work hard to put in place measures for strengthening appropriate financial flows, a new technology framework and an enhanced capacity building framework as envisioned in the Paris Agreement with a view to supporting action by developing countries and the most vulnerable countries, in line with their own national objectives.
Entry into force of the Paris Agreement triggers a variety of important consequences, including launch of the Agreement’s governing body, known as the CMA. In the parlance of the UN climate change process this stands for the Conference of the Parties to the Convention serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement. Precise dates will be announced in the coming days. The timing of the CMA during COP 22 will be announced in the coming days.
