ABOUT CP4D

Launched during the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in London, UK, the CP4D programme is helping to raise standards and build political commitment to democratic values through advancing inclusive and accountable democracy in the Commonwealth. 

During 2018-2020, CP4D will work with parliaments in 18 commonwealth countries across Sub-Saharan Africa and South-East Asia to improve the representation of women, young people, people with disabilities and the LGBT + community, and how they monitor the executive.
