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.

Parliamentary Action on Disaster Risk Reduction and Adaptation

ParlAmericas’ Climate Change Program developed in cooperation with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) a Parliamentary Protocol for Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation for the Americas and the Caribbean. The Protocol serves 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.
