The last 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21) in Paris witnessed a historical event. All nations have adopted, for the first time, a binding agreement to counter climate change consequences.
This decision compels all countries to commit more seriously in order to achieve the target goal. The city of Marrakech will be hosting the COP22 in November. It will be the opportunity for all nations to present first evaluation of the measures taken against global warming and greenhouse gas emissions.
Morocco is really concerned by the consequences of climate change as it is located in an awfully vulnerable area. Hence, Morocco has adopted a directive law in its Environment and Sustainable Development National Chart to reduce its GHG emissions by 32% in the horizon of 2030
