COP22 / 10. 11. 2016, Marrakesh, Marokko

 

Harald Sterly, Project Coordinator, and Kayly Ober, Research Associate, visited the Conference of the Parties (COP22) in Marrakesh, Morocco representing the the TransRe Project and the University of Bonn. “COP22 gets less attention than the COP21 in Paris, but the results presented there will be just as important. This is the COP that will focus on loss and damage, where countries will determine if displacement and migration issues may indeed be a part of compensation issues,” said Kayly Ober.
