COP22 Marrakesh: annual UN conference on climate change

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was adopted in 1992, at the Rio Earth Summit to coordinate international efforts to address climate change.

Countries that have ratified the UNFCCC are known as “Parties”, and they meet as the Conference of the Parties (COP).

The COP is the supreme body of the UNFCCC, and it currently meets once a year to review the Convention's progress and implementation.

 COP22 was held in Marrakech, Morocco, from November 7 to 18, 2016.
