Dear colleagues,

Mountain areas are disproportionately affected by climate change impacts, but do not receive adequate attention in international processes. During this webinar, international mountain experts and parliamentarians will present solutions and discuss potential ways forward to close these gaps.

Webinar on International Mountain Day 11 December 2020, 14:00-15:15 CET

"Climate change adaptation in mountain areas - What role is there for parliamentarians?​"

Co-hosted by the Inter-Parliamentary Union and the Adaptation at Altitude programme of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.

This event aims to:

  • Increase awareness on the importance of mountain ecosystems
  • Discuss the interlinkages between climate change adaptation strategies, DRR targets, and the SDGs
  • Identify challenges and opportunities for parliamentarians to play a more active role in these areas
  • Share “good practices” from parliaments and highlight their ability to implement their practices and their relevance to other political and social contexts

The event will be hosted in English with interpretation offered in French, Spanish, and Russian.
