United Against Climate Change

by Cop22 Marrakech

COP 22 — 22nd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change — kicked off in Marrakech, Morocco, on November 7. For two weeks, delegations of international leaders, organizations and advisers will work out how to implement a global climate agreement. A timely discussion following recent milestones, including three recent climate milestones: the Paris Agreement entered into force years ahead of schedule; a historic plan was agreed upon to offset emissions from international air travel; and a global deal was reached to limit the use of hydrofluorocarbons, a type of greenhouse gas.

Momentum is building, but we still have a long way to go. Given the historic outcomes of last year’s Paris climate talks, many are wondering what will be achieved at the Marrakech climate talks. The fate of the only planet we’ve ever called home is in our hands.

What we know is that nature-based solutions to climate change are essential for the success of the new climate agreement. CI’s work focuses on helping countries take full advantage of the contributions that nature can make toward the main goals of the Agreement.

These approaches can include activities that reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+), enhance carbon stocks along coastlines, and harness the power of ecosystems to adapt to climate change. These measures provide benefits beyond mitigation and adaptation, and are critical to accelerating our climate change response.
