We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
As the European Commission’s science and knowledge service, the JRC regularly provides scientific and technical advice for the development and implementation of EU policy in a range of thematic areas central to international climate negotiations. In this capacity the JRC also advises the EU's delegation to Marrakech, Morocco.
In addition, the JRC advances the EU’s goals for global action in other ways too: it produces analyses and reports on key themes, and at events it showcases its work and brings the EU’s scientific and technical perspective in debates engaging other Parties’ negotiators and experts.
JRC experts will speak at official UNFCCC special events, and at side-events held at the EU Pavilion.
At these events the JRC will be showcasing its work and contributing a technical perspective to the debates engaging Parties' delegates and experts on thematic areas that are the focus of current and upcoming negotiations.

Introducing the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy: the impact of collective city action
In recent months, the JRC has released a number of reports and publications addressing some issues central to international climate action.
Governments from around the world who are Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change meet in Marrakech (Morocco) from 7 to 18 November 2016 to advance international action to combat climate change.
As the global climate agreement adopted in Paris (France) last December enters into force on 4 November 2016, this year’s meeting simultaneously serves as the 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP22), the 12th session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP12) and the first meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA1).
The focus of the negotiations is on articulating the rulebook that will govern the implementation of the Paris Agreement from 2021, and on keeping up climate action in the meantime ('pre-2020 action').
