Rabat 03.17.2017

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation and President of the COP22, Mr. Salaheddine Mezouar, chaired, Friday 17 March 2017 in Rabat, a meeting of the COP22 Bureau, a meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP12) as well as a meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA1), with the aim to review the results of the COP22 and the initiatives of the Moroccan presidency, which continues until next November.  



Mr. Mezouar stressed that the Moroccan presidency of COP22 is particularly interested in funding climate change projects and initiatives in Africa and island states, noting that one of the major achievements in Marrakech is the participation of non-state actors and the private sector in this dynamic.

In the same manner that the COP22 enjoyed progress on African soil, Mr. Mezouar expressed the wish for a successful COP in the island states as well.

Emphasizing the state of mind and confidence between the stakeholders, Mr. Mezouar noted that the Moroccan Presidency will accompany the Fiji Islands in the preparation of the next COP, to be held in November in Bonn, in Germany.

The Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Mrs. Patricia Espinosa, stated that the Marrakech COP has achieved impressive results, adding that this COP will constitute a road map for the COP 23 and COP 24 in 2018, in Poland.

The UN official also expressed her wish to see non-state actors participate intensively in climate change projects, highlighting Morocco's progress in the field of renewable energies, in particular solar energy and wind.

Mrs. Spinoza pointed out that the Moroccan presidency, which continues until next November, is continuing its efforts at a critical stage, highlighting the efforts made in this context, with the ratification of the Paris Agreement.

A high-level delegation from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), chaired by its Executive Secretary, Mrs. Patricia Espinosa, will also take part in this meeting, as well as a representative of the COP23 presidency, which will be organized by the Fiji Islands next November in Bonn, Germany, headquarters of the UNFCCC Secretariat.

The meeting will also be attended by the chairpersons of the two permanent subsidiary bodies of the Convention, the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI).

It should be noted that the forty-sixth sessions of the SBSTA and the SBI, as well as the third part of the first session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA 1-3), will take place from 8 to 18 May, in Bonn.
