The Climate Vulnerable Summit, convened by the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF), an international cooperation group of developing countries on climate change, called on governments around the world to raise the ambition of their climate targets by 2020 to keep global warming to the 1.5°C limit and save vulnerable nations. The Summit was the first intergovernmental Summit to take place entirely online.
The Climate Vulnerable Forum is an international cooperation group of developing countries tackling global climate change.
The CVF was founded by the Maldives government before the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, which sought to increase awareness of countries considered vulnerable.
United Nations agencies collaborate in implementing activities linked to the CVF with the UNDP, the lead organization supporting the forum’s work.
The CVF was formed to increase the accountability of industrialized nations for the consequences of global climate change.
Afghanistan, Nepal, and Bhutan are its members, whereas India is one of the observer states.
