By encouraging signatories to adopt ambitious climate pledges, the Paris Agreement is able to; guide countries towards low-carbon and climate resilient development pathways and channel financial flows towards investments, that will enable a carbon-neutral economy by the end of the century.
The Agreement has sent a strong signal to international actors at every level of the political strata. This was evident from the surprising speed at which Parties began to ratify the treaty. Who could have imagined on December 12th 2015, that the Paris Agreement would enter into force before the commencement of COP 22?

The COP22 in Marrakech will be a key stepping stone to continue the momentum set in Paris 2015. It will bring together climate decision makers to:
I4CE supports and feeds international climate policy debate and action through research, policy analysis, knowledge-sharing, capacity building events and awareness-building. In keeping with this vision, I4CE will be organizing several events at COP22.
