CLIMATE CHANGE

ParlAmericas supports parliamentary climate action through innovative programs, dialogues, and partnerships designed for parliamentarians of the Americas and the Caribbean to promote the highest political commitments for advancing legislative work on climate change mitigation and adaptation in the hemisphere.

As part of our climate change program, we provide parliamentarians with knowledge resources informed by evidence-based research on climate change and field-based, context-driven learning. Learn More


Parliamentary Network on Climate Change

ParlAmericas serves as the international secretariat for the Parliamentary Network on Climate Change (PNCC). This is a joint initiative with Parlatino formally integrated into the ParlAmericas structure during the 13th ParlAmericas Plenary Assembly in Mexico City, in December 2016. Learn more


Parliamentary Action on Disaster Risk Reduction and Adaptation

ParlAmericas’ Climate Change Program is working in cooperation with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) to develop a new Parliamentary Protocol for Disaster Risk Reduction for Latin America and the Caribbean. The Protocol will serve as a guide for national parliaments in the hemisphere to align disaster risk reduction legislation with the Sendai Framework, and promote an integrated approach that combines disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation, and sustainable development.
