Climate Interactive in Marrakesh for COP22

November 3, 2016 by Juliette Bohland

LogoCOP22_LabeledProject (300ppi) Our Climate Smart Agriculture modeling and diffusion of the World Climate Simulation in Africa is endorsed by the COP22 organizers.

Climate Interactive is heading to Marrakesh for the UN climate talks (COP22). The whole World Climate team will be there (Travis Franck, Ellie Johnston, Grace Mwaura and Juliette Bohland) along with Multisolving Coordinator Stephanie McCauley, Climate Interactive Co-Director Drew Jones, and Professor John Sterman.

The two big issues we are following at COP22 are:

  1. The announcements about new mitigation pledges and mid-century strategies that will inform our Climate Scoreboard analysis,
  2. Initiatives around Climate-smart Agriculture in Africa to build on our modeling work with the University Mohamed VI Polytechnic and other African partners.

In addition, we have several opportunities to share the World Climate Simulation of the climate talks with audiences and discuss the critical role that these activities play in building momentum for climate action.

If you are in Marrakesh, we would love to see you at one of our events or booths. Depending on whether you want to learn more about pathways to achieve the Paris Agreement temperature goals, climate education, or adaptation strategies for African agriculture, there should be something for you! You can also simply come and meet us at one of our booths located in both the blue and green zones.
