This 'Parliaments in Practice: an Introduction' course is designed for legislators who are new to parliament, and for parliamentary staff, practitioners, donors, civil society organisations and others who want to learn about how parliament works.
This course explores how parliaments can take more effective and responsive action on climate change by strengthening their engagement with civil society. Building on the many success stories and best practices shared on AGORA’s Climate Portal, the course highlights initiatives, strategies and new technologies that help parliamentarians connect with the people they represent. Aimed at parliaments and civil society, this course hopes to inspire stronger and more effective collaboration on climate action.
Giving citizens meaningful opportunities to take part in budget processes allows governments to responsibly and openly shape budgets that reflect the most pressing priorities, and to better track the effective implementation of those budgets.
This course is a new version of the 'Parliaments in Practice: an Introduction' course with special focus on Myanmar
This course looks at how parliaments in cooperation with Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) and civil society organisations (CSOs) can strengthen their capacities to deliver more inclusive, accountable and open budgets for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Extractive industries can be a powerful driver of economic growth, but the extraction of non-renewable resources from the earth is linked to considerable political and economic risks. This course combines thematic expertise with global best-practices to provide parliamentarians and other oversight actors including SAI and civil society with a toolset for the transparent, independent and accountable management of extractive projects.
Information and communication technologies (ICT) tools are not only transforming the way interpersonal communications are taking place, but also information sharing and functioning of the work place, and ways of political mobilization around the world. For parliaments, ICT are a core enabler of greater openness, accessibility and accountability, as well as a two-way channel for engaging with citizens.
