Antananarivo – Foreign minister, Saleheddine Mezouar, expressed on Thursday in Antananarivo, the commitment of Morocco to carry on the momentum and mobilization efforts during its mandate of the 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP22).

While hailing the results of this global event, held in Marrakech, he stressed that everyone will remember this COP, such as “the COP of action, the COP of inclusiveness, the COP of the commitment of all.”
Mezouar noted that the global climate action has taken a new dimension in Marrakech with the flourishing of structuring initiatives on key themes of sustainable development such as the Triple A initiative, launched by Morocco and which promotes development in Africa, the global partnership for renewable energies and energy efficiency, which concerns the development of green energy and the rapid transformation of the global energy system.
The minister said that this COP, held in the African continent, responded to the call to place Africa at the heart of the global reflection.
He added that many initiatives have been launched to promote the sustainable development of the continent, mainly focusing on renewable energies and agriculture.
In this regard, Mezouar stressed that the African summit of action, which was chaired by HM King Mohammed VI on the sidelines of the COP, reinforced this momentum by reaffirming the commitment of the African leaders to promoting global efforts in order to combat climate change.
