Officials from almost 200 countries are meeting up in Marrakech, Morocco, for the first major summit since last year’s landmark agreement at COP21 to curb greenhouse gas pollution and limit global warming to below 2 degrees Celsius.
The Paris Agreement—which reached a consensus of 196 countries, 55 of which represent at least 55 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions—took effect on Nov. 4, just four days before the conference kicked off.
With the agreement barely into effect, however, Republican Donald Trump’s presidential win last week dealt a serious blow to last year’s UN climate talks given his campaign pledge to pull the U.S. out of the Paris deal.
Despite this, COP22 will serve as a vehicle for developing a plan on how to effectively implement last year’s agreement. The summit ends Friday.
Here are some of the key moments and best pictures from COP22.
