Pan African Parliament participates at COP 22
The President of the Pan African Parliament Hon. Roger Nkodo Dang will lead a delegation representing African Parliamentarians at the 22nd Conference of Parties (COP 22) which will take place in Marrakesh, Morocco from 7th to the 18th November, 2016.
The Pan African Parliament is the legislative organ of the African Union (AU) with a mandate to ensure the full participation of African peoples in the development and economic integration of the continent.
President Roger Nkodo Dang says the Conference of Parties (COP 22) will provide a clearer vision for the African Continent to plan efficiently for its future, particularly as it works towards AGENDA 2063. He says COP 21 has laid a solid foundation for both developed and developing countries to better manage climate change and its effects.
The threshold for entry into force of the Paris Agreement was achieved on 5 October 2016. The Agreement will enter into force on the 4th November 2016.
“It is a commendable achievement that the Paris Agreement has reached its enforcement threshold through ratification by at least 55 countries which together account for at least 55 % of global GHG emissions in 12 months of its adoption. We are therefore encouraged by the sign that meaningful progress will be made in this global agenda,” President Roger Nkodo Dang says.
