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. We create the spaces to establish direct dialogue with peers, local and international experts, and key stakeholders to advance the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), the Sustainable Development Agenda and the adoption of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Parliamentary Network on Climate Change
The ParlAmericas Parliamentary Network on Climate Change (PNCC) was created in 2016 with the objective of promoting parliamentary diplomacy on climate action within parliaments, aligned with existing international frameworks that work towards combating climate change and achieving sustainable development. The PNCC fosters knowledge exchanges between parliamentarians, expert practitioners, civil society and other stakeholders on effective practices for climate change mitigation and adaptation through workshops, dialogues and the creation of specialized resources.

Aligning Parliamentary Action to International Frameworks
ParlAmericas promotes the coordination and alignment of parliamentary actions on the environment with existing international frameworks to promote synergy between global and national objectives. ParlAmericas works to build understanding and support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, which offer valuable guidance to parliamentarians for decision making that integrates social, economic, and environmental factors, to shape more sustainable, resilient and equitable societies.
