MEDCOP CLIMAT TANGER 2016
18 - 19 July 2016
Morocco will host the 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP) in November 2016, under the aegis of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It will be a matter for the international community to measure progress on the Paris Agreement and to continue the process of negotiations on all the items on the agenda.
Morocco will also host the second Mediterranean Climate Forum in Tangier on 18 and 19 July, MedCOP Climat, following the MedCOP 21 which took place in 2015 in Marseille. Organized by the Tangier-Tétouan-Al Houceima Region, this Forum is a unique opportunity to bring together all the Mediterranean and international non-state actors involved in the fight against climate change in the Mediterranean in order to contribute to the implementation Of the Agenda for Solutions.
Today, more than ever before, our societies are confronted with the reality of climate change, with consequences that are already very worrying for a growing number of people and especially for developing countries.
Time has to be in action and the analysis of the commitments undertaken by the Contracting States to the UNFCCC and the commitments of non-state actors must make it possible to take stock of the mobilization of all the actors.
That said, beyond commitments, implementation remains the real challenge and everyone can and must contribute to the building of this common global agenda.
The Mediterranean is one of the “hotspots” of our planet and the consequences of climate change will be stronger there than elsewhere. Resolutely included in an international agenda, the reduction at source of greenhouse gas emissions as well as taking into account the adaptation needs of the riparian countries are declined at the regional level carried by many actors inscribed in the perimeter of the Mediterranean perimeter . The Mediterranean Positive Agenda resulting from the MedCOP21 made it possible to initiate multi-actor dynamics that must be multiplied in order to meet the challenges of today and those of tomorrow. It is also a matter of looking at how the Mediterranean area can engage in a low-carbon, resilient development pathway of solidarity and a better shared life. Ultimately, the analysis of commitments but also of national realities must enable the elaboration of realistic Mediterranean climate strategies contributing to the ambition and the implementation of international negotiations on climate change.

Report on the challenges and challenges facing the Mediterranean
This document was produced by the ENERGIES 2050 association and its partners in June 2016 as part of the preparation of the MedCOP Climate Regional Forum. The Forum is organized by the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Houceima Region and will take place in Tangier on 18 and 19 July 2016. It was the basis for the presentation of the MedCOP Climate. Without pretending to be exhaustive, this document gives an overview of the realities and challenges but also of the dynamics in progress and the different opportunities for action in a Mediterranean facing the consequences of climate change. It is also a matter of demonstrating the tremendous opportunities to act, subject to the setting up of a real multi-player dynamic, collaborative and unifying, pooling resources in order to be part of a transition that carries low carbon development, Resilience and indispensable solidarity here and elsewhere in the service of a peaceful and creative Mediterranean future. A mapping of the actors was also carried out in order to identify the key networks active in the Mediterranean area and to invite them to mobilize, each in their respective activities and networks, around the fight against climate change.
