Ramsar Convention at UNFCCC COP22

7 – 18 November 2016, Marrakech

The 22nd Session of the Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) will be held in Marrakech, Morocco, from 7 to 18 November 2016. COP22 will build on the achievements of COP21: signatories to the Paris Agreement now have to develop their National Adaptation Plans, so COP22 will focus on the actions now needed to achieve the priorities of the Agreement, especially related to adaptation, transparency, technology transfer, mitigation, capacity building, and loss and damages.

The Ramsar delegation led by Secretary General Martha Rojas-Urrego will emphasize the critical role of wetlands in climate change adaptation, and the urgent need to redouble actions for restoration, sustainable use and management of all wetlands.
