Commonwealth Parliamentarians to focus on the resilience and preparedness of the smallest Legislatures across the Commonwealth at 38th CPA Small Branches Conference
The 38th CPA Small Branches Conference brought together Members of Parliament from the smallest jurisdictions in the Commonwealth to discuss issues relevant to their Legislatures in a series of workshops.
Over recent years, logistical, financial and infrastructure demands have placed huge demands on the smallest jurisdictions in the Commonwealth and Parliaments and Governments are increasingly required to prepare for different eventualities.
Commonwealth Parliamentarians examined the unique challenges they face as this conference discussed strategies to meet the unique developmental needs of the CPA’s smallest Legislatures through key thematic workshops and development activities that build parliamentary capacity for CPA Small Branches and create greater opportunities for the sharing of knowledge, parliamentary strengthening and cooperation across the network.
