CICSS, along with the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, led the planning and Cornell Delegation to the 22nd Annual Conference of the Parties (COP 22) global climate change summit, Nov 7, 2016 – Nov 18, 2016 in Marrakech, Morocco. This COP is incredibly important – termed the “COP of Action” by the Moroccan Government – as it will assume responsibility from the accomplishments at COP 21 and focus on action items needed to achieve the priorities of The Paris Agreement. At COP22, the Cornell team held several side events with partners in hte UN Zone and Africa Pavillion, and staffed a display booth for the full two weeks to share information on our research ad extension projects. Funding for the delegation was provided for by CICSS, the Atkinson Center and the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies (for student participation). Contact Dr. Allison Chatrchyan for further details.
