Building peace in the minds of men and women


As the Paris climate agreement enters into force on 4 November 2016, the next Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) will focus on action, and helping countries to develop their National Adaptation Plans. It is taking place in Marrakech, Morocco, on 7-18 November.

As part of the overall United Nations system, UNESCO’s observer presence at the COPs is intended to provide information and technical resources about its work on climate change. The UNESCO pavilion in the civil society area of the COP venues provides an opportunity to engage with different stakeholders to collectively address climate change. UNESCO assists UNFCCC-COP host countries through its uniquely multidisciplinary expertise and outreach in climate change education, science, culture and communication, mobilizing efforts for enhanced climate change awareness and action in the lead-up to, during and in the follow-up to each COP.
