Morocco, UNFCCC, Fiji Islands Examine in Paris COP23 Preparation Process
Paris – High-level champion for climate action and special envoy of Morocco for COP22, Hakima El Haité, examined in Paris the process of preparing the upcoming United Nations Climate Conference (COP23) with officials of the Executive Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and of Fiji Islands.
This working session, held on August 3-4 at the headquarters of the Moroccan embassy in Paris, also tackled means to strengthen climate action worldwide and the steps to be taken until the holding of COP23, slated for next November in Bonn and whose presidency will be assumed by Fiji Islands.
The meeting, which is a part of the United Nations mandate, also discussed the preparation of an annual report (the Yearbook) on the synthesis of civil society and state actors’ achievements around the world in the field of climate change.
The report is meant to reinforce the process of the Paris Agreement’s implementation, in line with the decisions taken during COP22, held last November in Marrakech.
