In this webinar, parliamentarians from all over the world will convene to discuss Climate Leadership: Preparing for COP26. This is the second session in the "Parliamentary Leadership for the 2030 Agenda" webinar series to support parliamentarians with scientific evidence for decision making by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), Parliamentarians for the Global Goals (PfGG), and the International Health Partnership for UHC 2030 (UHC2030). This discussion-focused event seeks to foster an engaging dialogue between decision-makers in parliament and experts to determine how to best rise to the challenges posed by climate change.

In this session, we have asked leading experts and Members of Parliament to reflect on what strategies can be followed by parliamentarians to address the climate crisis. What are examples of successful measures that can be undertaken to reduce emissions and put the world on track for net-zero carbon emissions? How can these policies be enacted within a gender-responsive framework? More importantly, how can parliamentarians play a role in the implementation of climate mitigation and adaptation strategies? And how can parliaments utilize the framework of the COP to inspire each other across borders?

This video is the presentations by our expert speakers:
• Ambassador Luis Alfonso de Alba, Special Envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General for the 2019 Climate Summit
• Ms. Laurence Tubiana, CEO of the European Climate Foundation
• Mr. Rasmus Nordqvist, Member of the Danish Parliament
• Mr. David Smith, Director of the Center for Environmental Management at the University of the West Indies

Moderated by Ms. Kirsten Brosbøl, Founder, Parliamentarians for the Global Goals (PfGG).
