We are delighted to invite you to attend the virtual launch of our joint report on Parliaments and the Paris Agreement - an overview of emerging global experience in the run-up to COP26 during New York Climate Week. The report is a joint effort sponsored by the Westminster Foundation for Democracy, involving three leading parliamentary organisations, ParlAmericas, INTER PARES | Parliaments in Partnership - EU Global Project to Strengthen the Capacity of Parliaments and GLOBE International.
The report launch and panel discussion on 'Parliaments and the Paris Agreement' will take place on Friday, 24 September 2021, at 09:00 Ottawa 14:00 London 15:00 Brussels.
Join us for this first overview of how parliaments around the world have responded to the Paris Agreement. From climate change and net zero legislation to innovative scrutiny mechanisms, parliamentarians have responded to the climate emergency at multiple levels. As world leaders prepare to converge for COP26 in Glasgow, come and hear how parliaments have held them to account for promises made at Paris in 2015, and how they intend to raise ambition at COP26.
We look forward to welcoming you on Friday 24th September.
