Meet The 11 Moroccans in Charge of 2016’s UN Climate Summit

by Cop22 Marrakech

So who is making sure the UN’s biggest climate change event of the year will run smoothly? Meet the Moroccan executives who are preparing the 2016 summit as we speak.

The upcoming COP22 conference is set to take place in Marrakesh this November. Global climate change conferences are held annually by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and are partly organised by the hosting country.

Last year’s COP21 conference was held in Paris and resulted in the historic Paris Agreement, not least due to much praised diplomatic efforts by the French. This year, the summit will focus on solutions and on what countries should be doing to make sure they meet the targets set in Paris.

Morocco is determined to make the summit a ‘conference of concrete action,’ COP22 president Salaheddine Mezouar pledged while speaking at a major climate change event in Berlin earlier this month (July 4-5).

The 11 Executives

Without further ado, the Daily Planet introduces you to Morocco’s special COP22 steering committee chaired by Mezouar. The committee brings together 11 key officials who are working with the UN to take the Paris Agreement from adoption to action.
