In December last year, the world negotiated and adopted the historic Paris Agreement on climate change. For the first time, all countries – rich and poor, large and small – agreed to take universal action to limit global warming to 1.5-2°C, to achieve net zero emissions, and to increase resilience to the emerging impacts of climate change.
The first formal meeting of parties to the Paris Agreement will take place in Marrakech, Morocco from the 7th to the 14th of November.
Below you will find The Climate Insitute's analysis including COP 22 – Getting to Zero Policy Brief, and associated media releases, commentary, live tweets, videos and interactive tools. This page will be regularly updated between 7-18 November.
The Climate Institute CEO John Connor will attend the climate talks in Marrakesh, and will provide insights and commentary along the way. To arrange an interview, please contact Brinsley Marlay via email or at 02 8239 6299.
