President Paul Kagame will attend the 22nd meeting of countries that ratified international agreements on climate change resilience (COP22) due in Morocco.

The previous similar meeting was held in Paris, capital city of France in 2015.

The meeting will be held in Bab-Ighli where representatives from 195 countries that ratified the agreements are awaited to discuss implementation of Paris accords.

The agreement sets out a global action plan to put the world on track to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2°C.

The agreement is due to enter into force in 2020.

At the time countries agreed to make evaluations of attained steps each five years and raise $100 billion fund yearly to support environment saving projects.

The team which is organizing the meeting known as COP22 has said via Twitter account that the president of Rwanda Paul Kagame has confirmed he will attend the meeting on invitation of King Mohammed VI.

The meeting will be held from 7th to 18th November, 2016. It follows the recent one held in Kigali on the revision of Montreal protocol.
