Morocco's decision to host COP22 reflects the Kingdom's genuine efforts to protect the environment, making Morocco one of the most environmentally friendly countries in the world. The success of this global conference is highly dependent on the commitment of the regions and local authorities, particularly in terms of adaptation. They are both critical links in the value chain for combating climate change and laboratories for experimentation and implementation of public policies in this area.
Organized on 10 and 11 October, the preCop 22 of the Rabat-Sale-Kenitra region took place at the Mohammedia School of Engineering with the participation of teams from the International University of Rabat.
The objectives of this event are to contribute to the national dynamic that accompanies the organization of COP22 through a strong involvement of local and regional players, local authorities, associations, the private sector, the media, academia and citizens, in addition to providing local authorities with the knowledge and instruments to grasp the challenges of climate change and to take them into account in the planning process of priority regional actions based on "climate commitments".
Moroccan universities under the leadership of the Ministry and the CPU (Conference of University Presidents) are preparing for a strong participation in COP22 that will take place in Marrakech from 7 to 18 November.
In this regard, we are providing the documents relating to the participation of the universities in COP22 with the call for contributions (Project Sheet) to be completed. The forms must be sent to the CPU's scientific committee, which will review and select the projects that meet the objectives of COP22.
