The COP stands for the ‘’Conference of the Parties.” It is the supreme decision-making body of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), opened for signature in 1992 during the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and later entered into force in 1994. Through this instrument, the United Nations has equipped itself with an action framework to fight global warming. The last edition of COP, COP22, took place in Marrakech, Morocco from November 7 to 18, 2016; on that occasion, parties began preparations for entry into force of the Paris Agreement.  

During COP 22, OCCAM led an Infopoverty Seminar to present the results achieved and the main tasks of the World Food Security e-Center (WFSeC), illustrating its architecture and platform, and sharing the main services set-up for e-agriculture.
