FEEM Policy Seminar on “Was COP22 a real “COP of action”?”
12:30 - 14:00
The early entry into force of the Paris Agreement has really turned COP 22 into a “COP of Action”, as its official slogan declares. Important issues discussed in Marrakech include the definition of guidance for the nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and adaptation communication; modalities for the accounting of public climate finance; elaboration of the technology framework; and sources of input for the global stocktake. But being this an African COP, particular emphasis has been also placed on important issues for developing countries like adaptation and loss and damage, finance, technology transfer, and capacity building.
Hosted by three FEEM researchers that participated to the Marrakech talks, the seminar will explore and reflect on the main outcomes of the Conference. Particular attention will be drawn on the efficiency of NDC implementation, adaptation and L&D and climate finance.
