COP22 Could Be Decisive Moment in Climate Governance History Le Monde

Paris – The United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP22), scheduled for November 7-18 in Marrakech, could be a “decisive moment” in the history of climate governance, writes French daily ‘Le Monde’ in its Sunday issue, noting that “in all likelihood, the entry into force of the Paris climate agreement will take place in Morocco.”The paper, which recalls the fact that the European Union has given green light to ratifying the Paris Agreement, says that one year after the COP21 Summit, the Marrakech Conference could be a decisive moment in the history of climate governance.This hypothesis has gained some traction, especially with the adoption, on Friday, by the Council of European Environment Ministers in Brussels of a draft decision confirming the ratification of the EU of the said agreement, adds the paper, noting that the document also authorizes Member States to individually join the Paris text.
