COP22 Civil Society Pole To Sensitize 12 African Countries

MONROVIA, August 18 (LINA) - The United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP22) Civil Society Pole has disclosed plans to visit 12 African countries to strengthen the mobilization of non-state actors on the continent.

They seek to also encourage non-state actors’ participation in the United Nations Climate Change Conference scheduled to take place in Marrakech, Morocco from November 7-18.

COP22 Civil Society Pole release named South Africa, Cameroun, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, D. R. Congo, Rwanda, Sudan, Swaziland and Tanzania as countries it will be visiting.

While in these countries, they will hold series of meetings in each country with NGOs, coalitions and networks active in the climate change and sustainable development space.

The release from Morocco noted that the first phase of this mission was prepared in collaboration with and supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Morocco.

The release quoted COP22 Head of Civil Society Activities Driss El Yazami, as saying: “The participation of African civil society at COP22 is essential because they play a key role among researchers and experts in the process that ultimately led to the Paris Agreement.

He added, "COP22 in Marrakech seeks to address the issues of the “South," notably the African continent and Small Island Developing States as well as the resistance to climate change which requires that the continent act on the international, regional and local levels."

Meanwhile, the release has indicated that one of the main focuses of the COP22 Civil Society Pole is to increase awareness and action among non-state actors in Morocco on environmental issues and also to establish strong partnerships with international civil society.

“Their work is built on a long-term plan to structurally support the development of an engaged and committed civil society sector to address environmental issues and in particular the fight against climate change well beyond COP22,” the release concluded.
