Statement on natural disasters in Mexico

The member parliamentarians of ParlAmericas offer our sincere condolences and solidarity to the people of Mexico, who have suffered the devastating impacts of Hurricane Katia and an earthquake measuring above 8.0 in magnitude on the Richter scale.

We hope for a swift recovery for the survivors and affected communities, and we call on our governments to provide the necessary support to the respective national authorities.

These unfortunate events highlight the urgent need to continue to implement legislative action that responds to the effects of climate change and to develop initiatives for risk management that consider the needs of the most vulnerable populations.
