The National Assembly of Serbia and the Inter-Parliamentary Union are jointly organising a Regional Seminar on “Parliamentary cooperation for sustainable development: Combating poverty and promoting health care”. This event, to be held in Belgrade on 24 and 25 May 2018, is the fourth in a series of IPU seminars for the region on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the previous three having been hosted by the Romanian Parliament (in 2015 and 2016) and the Hungarian National Assembly (in 2017).

The seminar will offer an opportunity to share experiences, engage in comprehensive discussions on topics such as poverty eradication and improvement of public health care that are deemed to be very important in attaining a better quality of life. The impacts of climate change, the engagement of youth as well as the development of parliamentary mechanisms for the implementation of the SDGs will also be at the core of the discussions.
