The second day of the “South Asian Parliamentarians and Policymakers at Work: Putting Climate Adaptation, Food Security, Population Dynamics Back in the Agenda” sub-regional conference, witnessed spirited debates and productive discussions on a variety of critical climate related issues. The primary focus was on issues concerning agriculture and food security, water security, and migration and displacement related to climate change.
During the proceedings, members of parliaments, government officials and experts across South Asia, presented enlightening case studies and valuable commentary on the technical, social, political, economic and cultural elements that influence climate change related discussions. In response to South Asia’s position, many participants focused on the need for local, national and regional cooperation and collaboration to address trans-boundary issues. These policies could then serve as a platform for a broad South Asian position in global climate change discourse.
