Although I am young in academia, participating in the COP 22 climate conference in Morocco in November 2016, was an opportunity to engage with the issue of climate change as part of the international community. Out of the several meetings and parallel side-events that took place in Marrakech, I followed one stream on capacity building in developing countries. I reflected on issues that are of concern to me when it comes to the actual implementation of the 2015 Paris Agreement, especially for local communities, which are more vulnerable to climate change.
