Brighter Green’s Program Associate, Caroline Wimberly and Tozie Zokufa, chair of Pan African Animal Welfare Alliance (PAAWA), will be attending this year’s COP22 in Marrakech. The conference will be taking place from November 7-18.
“What is the COP?: The COP stands for the ‘Conference of the Parties.’ It is the supreme decision-making body of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), opened for signature in 1992 during the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and later entered into force in 1994. Through this instrument, the United Nations has equipped itself with an action framework to fight global warming.”
