Read the summary report

Time: 1–2 p.m. GMT

This is the first webinar in the Climate Legislation Webinar Series organized by the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), the Center for International Sustainable Development Law (CISDL) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) secretariat. This three-part series aims to build the capacity of parliamentarians and other key stakeholders in their response to climate change, and to promote knowledge-sharing on key topics in legislation and governance that arise in the implementation of the Paris Agreement. Participants will benefit from expert legal opinions and findings to support domestic legislative and policymaking efforts in implementing the Paris Agreement.

This first webinar focuses on the sharing of best practices and current legislation to illustrate how Parties to the UNFCCC are creating law and governance structures to best implement the provisions of the Paris Agreement. The discussion will provide important insights into how domestic legislative and executive organs can coordinate to operationalize international legal obligations. The webinar will also cover key topics related to transparency and compliance, such as the Enhanced Transparency Framework under the Paris Agreement. As such, it is highly relevant to parliamentarians.  

This 60-minute webinar will be hosted on Zoom.

This series is open to all parliamentarians and parliamentary staff, and is of particular relevance to legal staff. The other webinars will take place on 17 September 2020 (1–2 p.m. GMT) and 8 October 2020 (1–2 p.m. GMT). Participants are encouraged to join the whole series.
