East African Community Headquarters, Arusha, Tanzania, November 3rd, 2016: Preparations are in high gear at the East African Community Secretariat for it to effectively take part in the 22nd Session of the Conference of Parties (COP22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 12th Meeting of Parties to Kyoto Protocol (CMP12) to be held from 7th to 18th November, 2016 in Marrakech, Morocco.   

The first session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA1) will also take place in Marrakech in conjunction with COP 22 and CMP 12. The main purpose of these sessions is to review the progress in the implementation of decisions and directives of COP 21/CMP11 and agree the way forward on the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

The EAC delegation will be lead by the Deputy Secretary General in charge of Finance and Administration, formerly of Productive and Social Sectors, Hon. Jesca Eriyo.

As part of the preparations for the COP22/CMP12, the EAC Secretariat with support from US Government, undertook national climate change consultative meetings from 12th September to 4th October, 2016 in all Partner States seeking to identify national climate change priorities with a view to developing the common regional position to guide negotiations during the COP22/CMP12 and CMA1 sessions. Furthermore, the national consultations aligned countries’ road map for implementation of the Paris Agreement to the roadmap proposed by the EAC Secretariat.
