In April 2016, the Centre for Multilateral Negotiations arranged a two-days workshop with the government of Morocco holding the Presidency of the UN climate summit 2016 (COP22) and facing the first post-decision COP after Paris.
The workshop sessions proved an important and effective step in formulating the host country’s negotiation strategy and was funded by GIZ and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. The workshop was met with great appreciation from all participating parties, expressing the importance of the workshop for their work.
- The Moroccan government was extremely pleased with the offer and the workshop.
- The sponsor, the German Environment Ministry and the GIZ, confirmed the high usefulness of the workshop and underlined that all expectations were fully met.
The workshop featured multiple interactive sessions where high-level, international practitioners generously shared lessons learnt from facilitating former climate negotiations in dialogue with officials of the Government of Morocco. Discussions and contributions were held in order to design a strategy to address the specific challenges of negotiation management faced by Morocco as incoming Presidency of the COP22 negotiations in 2016.
