The world’s governments came together in Marrakesh, Morocco in November 2016 for the 22nd UN Climate Conference (known as COP22). Thousands of representatives from business, city governments, academia and NGOs also joined as observers to the official governmental negotiations, bringing the total number of attendees to some 20,000. The goal of the conference was to progress the processes and structures necessary to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement – the historic 2015 climate deal whereby 196 countries committed to reduce their carbon emissions in order to halt global warming and create a carbon-neutral world.
