UNCSD follow up: the role of parliaments
Organizing partnersInter-Parliamentary Union
IntroductionA look at the legisaltive, oversight and representational role of parliaments as key actors to be engaged in the global re-think and accelerated action that are required to achieve sustainable development.
Detailed programmeMembers of parliament participating in UNCSD will be invited to collectively assess the expected new international agreement and reflect on their role in carrying it forward.
The Briefing will review: the extent to which the new international agreement applies to parliaments; the substantive content of the new agreement and whether this constitutes a decisive step forward; key provisions of the agreement, particularly those that may relate to the establishment of new sustainable development goals or the constitution of a new international framework for sustainable development.
