Following the rapid entry into force of the landmark Paris Agreement, governments will take next steps at climate talks to be held November 7-18, 2016, in Marrakech, Morocco...

The 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 22) to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will include the first meeting of the CMA, the governing body of the Paris Agreement.

Negotiators will focus on developing rules for implementing the agreement, including the reporting and review of countries’ climate efforts; a new five-year cycle to assess progress and update parties’ contributions; and the use of market-based approaches.

Parties will likely decide in Marrakech to suspend the first session of the CMA, known as CMA 1, until 2018 to allow more time to complete these implementing decisions and for other countries to ratify the agreement.

The Paris Agreement marks a major turning point in the international climate effort, committing all countries to undertake nationally determined contributions and establishing new mechanisms to ensure accountability and promote rising ambition.

The Marrakech conference caps an extraordinary year of global progress on climate change: the Paris Agreement’s swift entry into force, a new agreement to cap emissions from international aviation and a deal to phase down powerful climate pollutants known as HFCs.
