Si chiude la Cop22 in Marocco con il lancio della Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action. L’iniziativa, presentata da Laurence Tubiana (Francia) e Hakima El Haite (Marocco) serve a fornire una tabella di marcia forte per sostenere il processo dello United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change a supporto dei governi e delle parti non governative, che nel periodo 2017-2020, attueranno le disposizioni dell’accordo di Parigi. La partnership si rivolge a beneficio di tutte le parti interessate alla lotta contro i cambiamenti climatici e a migliorare la vita delle persone in tutto il mondo. Secondo la dichiarazione, le altre decisioni prese durante l'evento di alto livello sono correlate a sviluppare la cooperazione internazionale in settori quali gli investimenti, le energie rinnovabili, i mercati dei capitali africani e del programma di Global Environmental Facility (Gef).

The 22nd Conference of Parties (COP22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Morocco has resulted in the establishment of the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action, the UNFCCC’s press service said Friday. "The High-Level Climate Champions Laurence Tubiana (France) and Hakima El Haité (Morocco) launched this partnership as a means of providing a strong road-map for how the UNFCCC process will catalyse and support climate action by Parties (government) and non-Party (non-government) stakeholders in the period from 2017-2020, giving effect to the existing arrangements as agreed by Parties at COP21 in Paris," the press service said in a statement. The partnership is aimed at benefiting all parties interested in fighting climate change and improving the lives of people around the globe, UNFCCC said. According to the statement, other decisions taken at the high-level event were related to developing international cooperation in such areas as investment, renewable energy, African capital markets and the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) program. The annual conference was held on November 7-18 in the presence of COP22 head Salaheddine Mezouar, President of the Marshall Islands Hilda Heine and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The conference started three days after the landmark Paris Agreement's entry into force. The Paris Agreement on Climate Change, adopted in December 2015, aims to limit global average temperatures to less than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The agreement also aims to create more financing to curb greenhouse gas emissions and support more climate-resilient development.
