Welcome to this page.
The Committee on Local Government, Environment and Territorial Planning (CLAETP) is the 7th Specialist Standing Committee of the Assembly of the Republic.
This committee was convened to participate in the parliamentary activities of the Portuguese presidency of the European Union, which will run during the second half of 2007.
On 1 and 2 October, the Interparliamentary Meeting on Climate Change: “Face the Challenge”, organized by CLAETP and by CLIM – the European Parliament’s Temporary Committee on Climate Change - will be held at the European Parliament (EP) in Brussels.
In view of the recent decisions relating to climate change approved by the Spring European Council, in its Meeting of 9 March this year, and by the G8 Summit in Heiligendamm, Germany, on 6 - 8 June, it is especially important to develop adaptation strategies for these changes at the national, regional and global levels.
This meeting is, therefore, an opportunity for the different parliaments to start up a debate and exchange information with the aim of “facing up to the challenge” that has been set before our societies, in order to meet the objectives and develop the joint actions necessary for this purpose, specifically by 2020 and by 2050.
The Chairman of the Committee on Local Government, Environment and Territorial Planning
