The Twenty-second session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 22), alongside the Twelfth session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 12), First session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 1), Forty-fifth session of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA 45), Forty-fifth session of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI 45); and Second part of the first session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA 1.2), will be held from 7-18 November 2016, Morocco, Marrakech.
The UNFCCC negotiations at COP22 will continue work on preparation of rules, guidelines and modalities for the full implementation of the Paris Agreement, in parallel to continuing ongoing work under the Convention. The information compiled in this Guide comes from the annotated agendas of the concurrently run sessions outlined earlier. It is not meant to be a 101 Guide about the UNFCCC, but rather a tool to facilitate advocacy in the lead up to and on-site at COP22. The Guide is geared towards those who will be working on the policy language across the negotiations, or those interested in assessing entry points for gender—and the events listed here are simply the mandated events taking place under the official negotiations. There are several other documents that, a) highlight gender-related events, b) outline the key demands of the Women and Gender Constituency and c) provide a deeper political analysis of the negotiations.
