PRESS RELEASE – Member of Parliament for Castries North, Hon. Stephenson King will represent the Parliament of Saint Lucia during a four day workshop on Sustainability, Energy and Development scheduled to kick off in Trinidad and Tobago tomorrow.
The workshop is being held under the auspices of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme. The activity is expected to shape an aspirational framework of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) for the Caribbean region.
The high level multi-stakeholder meeting will bring together a network of parliamentarians who will be updated on the strategic goals formulated thus far, as well as provide an opportunity for them to develop new initiatives.
A CPA release says, as representatives, legislators and scrutineers, parliamentarians have a responsibility to actively engage in the development agenda, to shape its success and in so doing make concrete improvements to the lives of their people and the global community
