2022 was the first year of the implementation of the five-year IPU Strategy for 2022-2026. Through its five objectives, the Strategy has given the IPU a renewed mandate to continue strengthening and connecting parliaments for peace, democracy and sustainable development.
In this newly structured Impact Report, we demonstrate how, throughout the year, the IPU has helped to strengthen parliaments and spurred policy change. In Part 1, we describe some of our activities and examples of impact, especially those that emphasize strong democratic parliaments and global parliamentary action. In Part 2, we focus on compelling examples of where the IPU has helped move the needle when it comes to influencing a parliamentary process for each of our priority policy goals, namely climate change,
democracy and strong parliaments, gender equality, human rights, peace and security, sustainable development, and youth participation.
