Pr. Hafsa El Bekri went to Sharm el-Sheikh on the occasion of COP 27 to represent the Euromed University of Fez in this global meeting which brought together around 200 countries, delegations, media, NGOs, companies, observers, and researchers. The objective of this African COP is to put on the agenda of the negotiations new actions to fight against global warming and its impacts.
Pr. Hafsa El Bekri also released a pre-cop column entitled "From Marrakech to Sharm El-Sheikh: Africa at the center of the climate agenda" published by challenge magazine in which she raises, among other things, the role of RIEMAS (Research Institute for European, Mediterranean and African Studies) Think Tank of the UEMF in the study of the new narrative of climate action in Africa and for Africa.
As a reminder, the first African COP was held in Marrakech in 2016 following which the UEMF eco- campus received the COP 22 Label for its ecological assets and compliance with environmental standards and sustainable development (low consumption of energy, integration of renewable energy technologies, maximum natural light, recycling, green spaces, etc.).
