Agriculture, forestry and fisheries will feature prominently during the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention Climate Change (COP22) in Marrakech from 7-18 November 2016.

The conference marks a turning point in efforts to address global warming, including its impact on food security and agriculture, because the landmark Paris Climate Change Agreement will enter into force just prior to COP22.

Dubbed the ‘COP for Action’, governments will make concerted efforts to support domestic action on climate adaptation and mitigation in order to comply with national commitments and enhance ambitions.

Events listed below include high-level FAO participation. These include three thematic Global Climate Actions events: i) Forests, ii) Oceans, and iii) Agriculture and Food Security. FAO experts will also participate in many other thematic events. Please click here for the FAO events calendar at COP22.
