National Legislative Assembly proposes revision of agreement on climate change


BANGKOK – Members of the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) attending this year’s Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) have called for a revision of the agreement on climate change in order to account for long term resilience. 

Kitti Wasinondh, who represents the Thai delegates at the IPU meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, spoke at the committee meeting on sustainable development, which discussed the drafting of an international agreement on climate change. He proposed that the agreement’s rhetoric should encourage long-term international cooperation and pointed out that its provisions should be updated to account for long term resilience.

In addition, Mr Kitti pointed out that the agreement’s language should be examined by experts to prevent any possible misinterpretations.
