Questions Raised Over Coal-Reliant South Africa Reaching Paris Goals

Nearly 200 countries will convene in Marrakech, Morocco, on Monday to advance progress made on the Paris Agreement on climate change.

The agreement will enter into force on Friday, signalling a true global effort to tackle the climate challenge.

The 22nd Conference of the Parties meeting (COP22) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change represents a crucial opportunity for member countries to demonstrate their commitments on climate change.

From November 7-18, COP22 must develop rules and processes for implementing the agreement to clarify and define operational elements for key issues covered in it. This is crucial to ensure that the global temperature rise is limited to well below 2°C, the minimum that climate scientists believe is required to prevent serious climate-related consequences.
