COP22 : The FWP assessment 



COP22 had been announced as the COP of action for the implementation of the Paris Agreement. It has in fact been a COP preparing to set a framework for this implementation. Negociations were slow and difficult, all the while admitting some achievenements, notably in the field of water.


Two official documents were made available at the end of the COP22: 

  • The decisions of the CMA1 (Parties which ratified the Paris Agreement) 
  • The proclamation of Marrakech for climate and sustainable development : a political declaration citing the essential points of the Paris Agreement, in reaction to the election of the new USA president. 



These two documents are available here :

Different alliances exist on water and climate – the FWP played a part in launching these initiatives made by the civil society at the time of the COP21 in Paris. They have now strenghtened with the COP22 : read the Marrakech document on these alliances here.
