Monitor what is happening in Marrakech

Signatories of the twenty-second Conference of the Parties (COP22) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, will be convening in Marrakech from November 7 to November 12 to implement the climate change agreement signed in Paris.   It is the conference which starts to build on the broad vision established in Paris and where the unresolved nitty gritty promises to start being hashed out.  

Emily J. Gertz published a great article on outlining 5 things to watch for in Marrakech.  For a deeper analysis, read this expert brief by the Council on Foreign Relations. 

Here is a schedule of the conference and and a site where the UN will be posting updates.
