The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) binds over 190 countries to work together to tackle climate change. Each year the parties to the convention meet to review progress. The 22nd Conference of Parties (COP22) will be in Marrakech, Morocco, from 7-18 November, 2016.
This year's COP will be the first since the landmark Paris Agreement, and will focus on action for implementation, including adaptation, technology transfer, capacity building and managing loss and damage. IIED and partners will be supporting negotiators from the Least Developed Countries, organising side events and workshops, and analysing progress at the talks.
IIED and partners will be speaking and participating in a range of side events and workshops at IIED, including a side event on how climate finance can reach the most vulnerable on 16 November and the 14th Development & Climate Days conference on 'Global ambition. Local action. Climate resilience for all' on 12 and 13 November
