CARLAC and OCP Policy Center brings “Low Carbon Renewable Energy: Lessons from MENA and Latin America Regions”

A COP22 side event, the forum is being organized by the Council on Arab World Relations with Latin America and the Caribbean, also known as CARLAC headed by Ambassador Hasan Abdelrahman and Mohamed Dekkak. CARLAC together with the OCP Policy Center will bring the forum to public on November 10, 2016 at 3:30pm in Bab Ighli,Green Zone, Marrakech.

Entitled “Low Carbon Renewable Energy: Lessons from MENA and Latin America Regions,” the side event will pave way for countries from the Middle East, Latin America and North Africa to share their valuable experiences and lessons on having achieved successful projects in utilizing renewable energy and how these green technologies could possibly be adapted to other countries in the fight to climate change.

Side events and exhibits were set up as a platform for organizations that have limited opportunity to present in the formal negotiations, to be able to interact with Parties as well as other participants for knowledge sharing, capacity building, networking and exploring solution on addressing this environmental concern.

As a non-government and non-partisan organization built to solidify relations between Latin America, the Arab World and the Caribbean, CARLAC which is headed by Ambassador Hasan Abdelrahman standing as its CEO, declared the participation of top level government representatives from Caribbean and Latin America on the anticipated side event.

The OCP Policy Center is a policy-oriented think tank located in Rabat, Morocco, which aims to promote information sharing and to contribute to a profound dialogue on important issues on economic and international relations.

Due to global warming, nature catastrophes such as tsunamis and heat waves continue to bring damage on both the environment and the people; it’s a serious international concern. This is why it is vital for our global leaders to acknowledge what the general public wants and to address the issue with solid and tangible action plans.

The 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties will be an assembly of government leaders, legislators, policy experts and negotiators from participating countries to discuss policies and measures to satisfy the Paris Agreement held last year in France. They need to move from concept to implementation.

This year’s United Nations annual convention on climate change is set to take place in the city of Marrakech in Morocco. The COP22 event is expected to assess progress made in dealing with global warming. Participating countries discuss about plans to evade the worst impacts of climate change.
