UN climate change conference (COP22)

IIED at the 2016 UNFCCC climate change summit in Marrakech (COP22)

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) was in Marrakech, Morocco, from 7-18 November, 2016.

The COP was the first since the landmark Paris Agreement, and focused on action for implementation, including adaptation, technology transfer, capacity building and managing loss and damage. IIED and partners supported negotiators from the Least Developed Countries, organised side events and workshops, and analysed progress at the talks.
