UNGA Chairman Lauds Morocco’s Climate Action Leadership

Bonn – Chairman of the UN General Assembly Miroslav Lajcak lauded, Wednesday in Bonn, Morocco’s leadership in terms of climate action, as part of its Marrakech COP22 chairmanship, the first after concluding the Paris Agreement on Climate in 2015.

“I thank Morocco which played a leading role in climate action as part of its COP22 presidency,” he said at the opening of the high-level segment of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 23).

The event’s opening ceremony was marked by the participation of HRH Princess Lalla Hasnaa who is representing HM King Mohammed VI.

Lajcak highlighted the need to forge ahead, under the new Fijian CO23 presidency, with implementing the goals of the Paris Agreement which seek to curb global temperature rise below 2° Celsius.

The COP23, held on Nov. 6-17, is meant to devise rules and regulations that would help carry out the said Agreement.
