Mr. Chairman, the British Virgin Islands is very pleased to be a part of this timely initiative which reflects successful inter-parliamentary cooperation among parliamentarians in Latin America and the Caribbean in the lead up to COP 26. I am highly confident the Parliamentary Observatory for Climate Change and Just Transition will prove to be an invaluable asset to parliamentarians seeking to guide their parliaments’ efforts to help accelerate the national transition from carbon intensive societies to low carbon economies.
