The Secretariat of the UfM concluded a partnership agreement with the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima Region (Morocco), which will host the MedCOP Climate 2016 in Tangier on 18 and 19 July in preparation for the COP22, to take place in Marrakech in November 2016. The aim of the agreement is to work together to reinforce regional cooperation and integration in the Mediterranean within the framework of the MedCOP Climate 2016.

The MedCOP Climate will bring together more than 2,000 representatives from various countries in the Mediterranean basin, from civil society organisations and various regional/international organisations to economic stakeholders and experts. Following the first MedCOP edition in Marseille in June 2015, it will mark a crucial step towards the implementation of a Mediterranean agenda for climate change.
The aim of the second edition of the MedCOP Climate will be to highlight current Mediterranean initiatives linked to climate action and to formulate innovative ideas in an attempt to achieve the goals set by the Paris Agreement.
The event will include thematic workshops, conferences and round table discussions on issues related to climate change. It will also see the inauguration of a “Medina of Solutions”, which will reveal a potential circular economy adapted to climate change through creative and innovative solutions in support of sustainability. There will also be a forum for young people on 17 July, which seeks to create a network of young Mediterranean citizens dedicated to climate issues.(EU Neighbourhood Info
