The programme started with a seminar in November 2012, for the Committee on Environment, Natural Resources Management, Tourism and the Hospitality Industry on Climate Change. The purpose of the seminar was to brief Members of the Committee on the current parliamentary discussions on Climate Change and the role of the Parliament within the debates. The seminar was also attended by Hon. Frolick, Chairperson of the Climate Change Committee of the Parliament of South Africa and Hon. Thibeti, Member of the Agricultural Committee of the Pan African Parliament. They shared their experiences, in terms of the preparations for COP 18 and the Committee’s role in the Climate Change legislation. The seminar served also to prepare the Members for their participation in the World Legislator’s Summit on Climate Change, which they attended in January 2013 at the UK Parliament. The seminar ended with the official launch of the Programme, by the European Union Ambassador to Zimbabwe, His Excellency Aldo Dell’ Ariccia. At the World Legislator’s Summit on Climate Change, the Zimbabwean parliamentary delegation was able to launch a climate legislation initiative which will support Zimbabwean legislators to advance climate change legislation between 2013 and 2015.
