Marrakech Climate Change Conference - November 2016

IISD Reporting Services - COP 22 - CMP 12 The Marrakech Climate Change Conference will convene from 7-18 November 2016, in Marrakech, Morocco. At this session the 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP 22) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the 12th Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 12), and the 1st Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 1) will take place. The 45th sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI 45) and the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA 45), and the second meeting of the first session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA 1-2) will also convene.

The meeting was expected to continue work to prepare for the entry into force of the Paris Agreement and CMA 1 under the COP, CMP and subsidiary bodies. However, with the early entry into force of the Paris Agreement and the addition of CMA 1 to the Conference schedule, the timeline for a number of the ongoing negotiations has changed. The APA, the SBI and SBSTA began negotiations in June on a number of issues that are supposed to be concluded for consideration and adoption at CMA 1, inter alia on: further guidance on features of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs); further guidance for the information to be provided by parties in order to facilitate clarity, transparency and understanding of NDCs; guidance for accounting for parties’ NDCs; modalities and procedures for the operation and use of the public registry; guidance to ensure that double counting is avoided on the basis of a corresponding adjustment by parties for both anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks covered by their NDCs under the Agreement; a work programme under the framework for non-market approaches to sustainable development; modalities and procedures for the operation and use of a public registry; further guidance in relation to the adaptation communication, including as a component of NDCs; modalities for the accounting of financial resources provided and mobilized through public interventions; elaboration of the technology framework; identify the sources of input for the global stocktake; and develop modalities for the global stocktake. CMA 1 is mandated to consider these and additional issues.

In addition to negotiations under the COP, CMA, SBI, SBSTA and APA on the implementation of the Paris Agreement, the bodies meeting at the Conference are expected to address regular agenda items related to the implementation of the Convention and Protocol, including on climate finance, adaptation and loss and damage, response measures, reporting and review of national implementation, technology development and transfer, and capacity building, among others.
