Parliamentary hearings on nationally-determined commitments

National GLOBE Chapters around the world, supported by the GLOBE International Secretariat, will organize national parliamentary hearings on national commitments towards a legally-binding global agreement on Climate to be negotiated within the UNFCCC framework and agreed at the 21st UN Climate Conference in Paris in December 2015.

The hearings will be organized by GLOBE groups of legislators (currently active in over 30 countries, with members covering an additional 20 parliaments) and will consist of committee-style hearings of government negotiators and ministers who will present the national contribution and offer the opportunity for parliamentary debate.

GLOBE legislators at national level will open the process to national stakeholders and use the hearings to inform parliamentary colleagues and to communicate the importance of reaching an ambitious 2015 global agreement on climate to their constituents.
