Weeks after the entry into force of the Paris Agreement on climate change, world leaders are gathering from November 7-18 in Marrakech, Morocco for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP22. The Paris Agreement, adopted by 196 Parties, seeks to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping the world’s temperature rise this century below 2 degrees Celsius of pre-industrial levels and striving to limit it to 1.5 degrees Celsius. COP22 hopes to further define the rules for the Paris Agreement’s implementation and lay out a viable plan for providing at least $100 billion by 2020 to developing countries to support climate action. Over 20 African nations have ratified the agreement and climate change remains at the forefront of many African national and regional agendas.
