More about the ECA in this BRIEFING.

COP22 (Marrakech, 7-18 November) is the third Climate Change Conference taking place on African soil, after COP7 (2001) and COP17 (2011). This will be a key moment for Africans to push for global commitments towards the implementation of the Paris Agreement adopted in December 2015 and a shift towards resilient, low carbon development.
