Around the Pier: Scripps Informs Science Policy at International Climate Conference

Written by Natalya on .

Visitors from nearly 200 countries recently descended upon the vibrant and bustling North African city of Marrakech to attend the 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP22). The 2016 conference, hosted by Morocco from Nov. 7-18, was the latest in a series of global climate change policy negotiations led by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Some 20,000 people attended COP22, including the largest-ever delegation of students and researchers from the University of California San Diego and Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Amid the two-week frenzy of international policy negotiations, Scripps and UC researchers were on hand to inform delegates and negotiators of the most up-to-date climate science findings.
