The 22nd session of the annual United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s Conference of the Parties (UNFCCC COP), COP-22, will be held in Marrakech (Morocco) this month (7-18th November 2016). A key task for the COP is to review the national communications and emission inventories submitted by the Parties. With the information submitted, the COP can then assess the effects of the measures taken by the Parties and the progress made in achieving the ultimate objective of the convention.
This session will also be the first session of the COP serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement, unified last year at COP-21, which was put into force today!
