Organized by the Latin American and Caribbean Parliament (PARLATINO) and the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), the regional seminar will provide a platform to members of parliament from Latin America and the Caribbean to exchange ideas about the opportunities and challenges associated with achieving the SDGs. The Seminar will discuss how parliaments can effectively engage in policymaking to facilitate the implementation of the SDGs and to share successful experiences from their own countries. Particular emphasis will be placed on the issue of economic, social and environmental inequalities and how they impede progress towards sustainable development. The Seminar will allow participants to develop specific strategies, actions and recommendations to advance parliamentary engagement on the SDGs in the region.
The documents of the meeting are available only in English and Spanish
