The Marrakesh Conference on Global Warming is currently being held in Morocco, ending on November 18, very much with the participation of Monaco. This is the 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP22) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. A total of 196 states participated.

HSH Prince Albert was accompanied by a delegation, including Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Minister of Public Works, Environment and Urban Development, who delivered a speech on Tuesday at the WHO Ministerial Summit on Health, Environment and Climate Change.

She expressed the hope that the meetings of COP22 could lay the foundation for fruitful collaboration between the health and environment sectors, and assured Margaret Chan, Director-General of WHO, of the unwavering support of the Principality.

On Sunday, Prince Albert presented the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation Award to Blue Carpet4climate change action.
