A parliamentary hearing entitled "Emerging Challenges to Multilateralism: A Parliamentary Response" was held here today, in which HE Speaker of the Shura Council Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid Al Mahmoud participated along his accompanying delegation.

The two-day hearing, being held at UN Headquarters, addresses the new challenges facing the international community and national governments in achieving "collective action as one global governance" in tackling newly emerging challenges, such as recent challenges including climate change, migrants, refugees, sustainable development, nuclear disarmament and others.

The hearing session also aims at raising awareness among parliamentarians of the importance of multilateralism in addressing global issues and global phenomena and calling for activating the role of parliaments and parliamentarians in urging their governments to give importance to multilateral collective action through the UN as an effective means rather than individual, bilateral and regional procedures.

It was attended by HE Permanent Representative of the State of Qatar to the United Nations Ambassador Sheikha Alya Ahmed bin Saif Al-Thani, and a number of members of the Shura Council.
