Addressing the commitments made in the environmental mandates adopted at the IX Summit of the Americas

Recognizing that net anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions have continually risen in all major sectors and that unsustainable inequitable development models are increasing the exposure of ecosystems and humans to climate hazards, the 6th Gathering of the Parliamentary Network on Climate Change (PNCC) focused on analyzing legislative initiatives that can be implemented to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, particularly in the sectors with the highest emissions: energy, transportation, and agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU).

The 6th Gathering was organized in two meetings, the Interparliamentary Dialogue and the Plenary Session, which culminated with the adoption of a declaration. To ensure an inclusive lens within the conversation, the Gathering’s methodology was consulted with women’s organizations and dialogues featured multistakeholder perspectives from parliamentarians, parliamentary staff, civil society organizations, youth representatives, entrepreneurs, academia, and international organizations.

Taking into consideration the work of the PNCC to foster knowledge exchange and encourage parliamentary climate action, as well as the mandate adopted by the Heads of State and Government at the IX Summit of the Americas to promote parliamentary participation as an integral part of the Summits of the Americas process through ParlAmericas, the following document briefly details the manner in which the 6th Gathering of the ParlAmericas PNCC: Realizing our Green Future: The Road to Low Emissions integrated within its themes and the declaration, the commitments of the mandates: Accelerating the Clean, Sustainable, Renewable and Just Energy Transition and Our Sustainable Green Future.
