This toolkit contains policy ideas, example parliamentary questions and model documentation specific to Francophone West Africa, but should be of interest to legislators worldwide, as well as others working in the energy sector. These resources were developed as part of the Parliamentary Action for Renewable Energy project, implemented jointly by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Climate Parliament.
The Government of India recently officially introduced an important tax reform - the GST (Goods and Services Tax). This policy brief was prepared by members of the Climate Parliament team and highlights the impact of GST on the renewable energy sector. This brief was also circulated among the legislators in our network.
Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLAD) is a unique scheme for legislators, which creates a platform to connect elected representatives, stakeholders, ground level institutions and civil society. It aims to provide civic services, which are better delivered at the local level in the respective constituencies, and local governments are better placed to fulfil the needs of local people than at centre or state level.
