From 18-20 November 2014, CPA UK, in collaboration with the UNDP and World Bank Group, brought together parliamentarians, experts and academics for an International Parliamentary Conference focused on the crucial role that institutions and legislators have to play in shaping and monitoring economic policies and ensuring sustainable and equitable growth.
The programme looked at questions such as: What does good economic growth look like? How do nations ensure that the benefits of growth reach the most vulnerable? How can legislators influence governments to deliver? Why do strong institutions matter?
CPA UK delivered a workshop on 21 November in partnership with the National Resource Governance Institute on Parliamentary Engagement on the Extractive Industries which provided an important opportunity for parliamentarians, industry representatives and experts to share knowledge, experience and best practice on engaging with the extractive industries to the best possible benefit of their citizens.
