The 22nd UN Climate Conference (known as COP22) takes place in Marrakech, Morocco from 7 to 18 November, 2016. It follows the historic 2015 conference in Paris (COP21) where almost 200 countries committed to reduce their own carbon emissions in order to halt global warming and create a carbon-neutral world.

At COP22, negotiators will focus on how to deliver these commitments and strengthen the world’s response to climate change.
