Parliamentary Action on Renewable Energy (PARE)

AGORA moderator's picture

The Parliamentary Action on Renewable Energy (PARE) project is jointly implemented by the United Nations Development Programme and Climate Parliament, with the support of the European Commission and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.  

The PARE project seeks to leverage the powers and privileges of parliamentarians to promote the development of renewable energy resources.  It does so by supporting cross-party groups of parliamentarians in support of renewable energy, in order to build the required political will and strengthen the relevant policy and regulatory frameworks.

PARE International Parliamentary Report: Legislation for a sustainable energy revolution

How can we protect our citizens from climate change? How can we tap into the sun that pours out of our skies and the wind that blows across our coasts and deserts? How can we create jobs for our constituents and power our economies into the future?

Renewable energy legislation holds many of the answers to these questions. Legislation is the cornerstone of renewable energy development; it lays the foundations that create stable and ambitious policies that attract investment.

The report features an overview of speeches, presentations, and interventions made, and includes a full programme, participant list, and message of welcome from Climate Parliament Chairman Sir Graham Watson.
