The 2022 edition of the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) ranks Morocco in the top group of countries undertaking the most efforts to mitigate global warming, in accordance with the Paris Agreement of 2015 (COP21).
Out of the 68 countries studied, representing 92% of global greenhouse gas emissions, Morocco ranks among the top 5 with an overall score of 71.64 points. As a reminder, the CCPI does not award the top three places in the ranking, believing “that no country in the world performs well enough in all index categories to obtain a very high overall score”. Note that the Kingdom is ahead of countries such as France, Germany, Spain, China and Japan.
On the continental level, Morocco is by far the best performing country, ahead of Egypt (21st) and South Africa (39th).
The Climate Change Performance Index, published annually since 2005, on the initiative of Germanwatch, NewClimate Institute and Climate Action Network International, is an independent monitoring tool to track the climate protection performance of more than 60 countries. The CCPI aims to improve the transparency of international climate policy and makes it possible to compare the efforts and progress of each country in terms of climate protection.
