UN Climate Conference - Marrakech, Morocco
7-18 November 2016

Bab Ighli, Marrakech

COP22 UN Climate Change ConferenceThe twenty-second session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 22) and the twelfth session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 12) will be held in Bab Ighli, Marrakech, Morocco from 7-18 November 2016.

The Paris Agreement will enter into force on 4 November 2016. As a result, the first session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 1) will take place in Marrakech in conjunction with COP 22 and CMP 12.

Greenpeace urges governments in COP22 to:

  • Agree on additional measures to enhance climate action before 2020.

  • Ensure that the Paris Agreement rulebook and the institutions supporting countries’ efforts are fit for purpose, in light of the 1.5C warming limit and the other transformational goals of the agreement. These rules must be finalised by 2018.

  • Ensure that in 2018, when countries will come together to assess the adequacy of their action, they come well prepared and ready to take on new or revised targets for 2025 and 2030.

  • Ensure that countries start preparing for their mid-century low emission strategies without delay, so that these can feed into the 2018 review and inform how close or far are we from meeting the Paris Agreement goals.

  • Give reassurance to developing countries about future funding, especially for adaptation. This means new grants, agreeing on a roadmap to achieve the existing $100 billion commitment by 2020, and improving the accounting of the flows at both ends.

  • Accelerate action to address Loss and Damage, including non-economic losses (of lives, health, cultural heritage, biodiversity and so-on) by devoting more resources to this challenging but fundamental area of international cooperation.

  • Catalyze real and scaled-up actions in the wider community.

Accelerating change must involve the brightest minds, the boldest ideas and the bravest leaders from all corners of our world.
