Climate Chance Summit Kicks Off in Agadir
Agadir – Climate Chance summit kicked off, on Monday in Agadir, an event that aims at providing a connecting link between the 22nd UN Climate Change Conference (COP22), held in Marrakech, and the next COP in Germany.
At the opening of this summit, held under the patronage of HM King Mohammed VI and which brings together NGOs, elected officials, local authorities, the private sector, and ministers and international organizations, participants assessed the state of progress in climate negotiations with the major actors of the Paris Agreement and the COP22, notably after the announcement of the withdrawal of the United States.
The opening plenary meeting was an opportunity to take stock of progress made by climate actors since the 2016 Climate Chance summit, held in Nantes, France.
The three-day summit features five plenary sessions and several parallel events that will mainly tackle the mobilization of non-state actors, priority areas of action and possible solutions to combat global warming.
