COP 22 Side Event: Filling the Pipeline

CCAP participated in the 22nd Conference of Parties (COP22) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), in Marrakech, Morocco from November 7 – 18.

In the lead-up to COP21, CCAP conducted research and analysis on key topics related to the UNFCCC process, including: how the process could facilitate countries’ efforts to convert their Nationally Determined Contributions into policies, measures, and finance-ready investment strategies; and how Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes could be employed and governed to ensure they support the Paris Agreement objectives and allow for greater global ambition.
