Parliamentarian Work

All over the World Parliamentarians play a key role in teh achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. Parliamentarians can help shape a consensus and must invest greater efforts in reinforcing accountability, both in their oversight function to government but – most importantly- towards citizens , with greater transparency and listening. Cross cutting issues such as sustainability, resilience, inequality, gender, governance, security and human rights present additional challenges that parliamentarians agree can be key to making a difference. Furthermore, strong partnership between parliament, government, civil society, private sector, including women and young people can go a long way towards achieving the MDGs and shaping the world we want post-2015.
