The Twenty-Second Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is about to start, as delegations of different United Nations members started to arrange their logistics to Marrakech, Morocco. From November 7 to 22, 2016, the UNFCCC will discuss, with fellow UN members, the different environmental issues being faced by both the developed and developing countries including but not limited to adaptation strategies, mitigation, loss and damage, and capacity building.
Also, part of this is the discussion on the increasing emissions, as mentioned in the Paris Agreement. Just few days ago when the World Meteorological Organization announced that the globally average carbon dioxide (CO2) levels reach 400 parts per million in 2015.
According to them, the 'growth spurt' of the carbon dioxide levels is due to the El Nino event that has happened in 2015, and that its direct effects to the people exhibits until today.
While United Nations members still continue to put their best effort on the ratification of Paris Agreement, the discussion on the carbon emissions is still waiting for the conduct of COP 22. The World Meteorological Organization, along with the members of the United Nations, are still hoping that there will be a fair share of responsibility especially now, after the identification of the carbon dioxide level increase.
The Climate Change still continue to show its effects to almost all parts of the world, and it is the developing countries which lives are at stake, at most. Everyone is hopeful that the upcoming conference will come up with a comprehensive resolution on how all countries will be taken guilty of the increasing carbon and greenhouse gas emissions.
