The Parliament is dedicated to building an energy system that is sustainable and low-cost by helping MPs in Asia, Africa and Europe make that renewable switch. Legislators are supported by a secretariat of experts and researchers. The Parliament believes that tools, technology and resources already exist for renewables to ‘outcompete’ fossil fuel on price – without subsidies. It also promotes decentralized ‘power to the people’ models through off-gird and mini village-based grid systems, mobilizing bond markets and other private investment and, most important of all, builds political will.

Solution Exchange: Wider choices smarter development

 

Solution Exchange, launched in 2005 by the UNDP, provides a web-based platform for exchange of knowledge, ideas and solutions among development practitioners across 13 thematic areas (Communities of Practice – COPs), including on climate change. This exchange paves the way for new collaborative ventures, creates spaces for discussions that feed into policy formulation, and provides feedback on implementation through voices from the field. In sum, this initiative helps members increase the effectiveness of their individual efforts. Policy makers use this platform to elicit suggestions and responses on policy formulations and evaluation of government interventions.
