Upcoming Parliamentary Dialogue with the UNHCR Special Advisor on Climate Action 

Join UNHCR, IPU and PHAP for a webinar on Climate Action 

On 21 September, join us for a webinar on 21 September, co-organized by the UNHCR and the IPU, and supported by PHAP, in which we will discuss the role of parliaments and linkages between climate change, displacement, and human security.

In responding to climate change and displacement and building long-term resilience, parliaments play a central role. They ensure that treaties and commitments are translated into national legislation and that adequate budget allocations are made to support local adaptation activities and implementation of climate change and disaster laws and policies.

The event will feature a presentation by the UNHCR Special Advisor on Climate Action, drawing on UNHCR’s first ever Strategic Framework on Climate Action, followed by a dialogue with parliamentarians to create an open space for sharing of information and good practices.

This webinar is free to attend.
