Harald Sterly, Project Coordinator, and Kayly Ober, Research Associate, visited the Conference of the Parties (COP22) in Marrakesh, Morocco representing the the TransRe Project and the University of Bonn. “COP22 gets less attention than the COP21 in Paris, but the results presented there will be just as important.
