Marrakech (Morocco), 13 November 2016
Organized jointly by the Inter-Parliamentary Union and the Parliament of Morocco

COP22 The 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 12th session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, commonly known as COP22/CMP12, will take place from 7 to 18 November 2016 in Marrakech, Morocco.

The IPU and the Moroccan Parliament will organize a Parliamentary Meeting in conjunction with the Climate Change Conference in Marrakech. The Meeting will be held with a view to providing parliamentarians with an opportunity to obtain first-hand information on the main issues and orientations of COP22/CMP12, interact with government negotiators directly involved in the UNFCCC decision-making process, gain better knowledge of the recommendations included in the IPU's Parliamentary Action Plan on Climate Change and discuss ways of ensuring speedy operationalization of the 2015 multilateral deal on climate change, known as the Paris Agreement, through its ratification or other forms of domestic legislative action, as appropriate.

The Parliamentary Meeting will take place on Sunday, 13 November, on the premises of the Palmeraie Palace Hotel and Conference Centre.

It is possible to book rooms at preferential rates in the Palmeraie Palace Hotel. Please use the on-line booking facility as described in the instructions provided by the hosts. The hotel can only guarantee bookings at preferential rates if they are made before 31 July 2016.

Important notice. The IPU and the host Parliament are not in a position to facilitate accreditation to COP22/CMP12 and provide visa support for entry into Morocco. These matters should be dealt with by each delegate individually, as part of the overall COP22/CMP12 accreditation procedure.

About the draft outcome document: The Rapporteur of the Parliamentary Meeting in Marrakech, Mr. Ahmed Touizi, member of the House of Councillors of Morocco, appointed by the host Parliament, has prepared a preliminary draft of the outcome document, as presented below. IPU Members are invited to examine the preliminary draft and provide comments and observations on its form and content by 1 November 2016 at the latest. Participants of the 135th IPU Assembly will also have an opportunity to discuss the preliminary draft outcome document during the session of the IPU Standing Committee on Sustainable Development, Finance and Trade. The session will take place in Geneva on 25 October 2016. The rapporteur will then finalize the draft and the IPU will publish it on its website on 7 November.
Due to the close proximity of the dates of the IPU Assembly and the Parliamentary Meeting in Marrakech, it will not be possible to invite new amendments on the revised draft outcome document. Delegates to the Parliamentary Meeting in Marrakech will be able to submit additional amendments on the spot in an individual capacity. Those amendments should be editorial and should not impact the document’s overall scope or nature. The draft outcome document will be presented to the closing session of the Parliamentary Meeting on 13 November with the intention of adopting it by consensus.
