in a couple days, world's most #climate vulnerable countries are huddling to make moves. Back 'em up? #350ppm

The Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) is a group of nations that are disproportionately affected by the impacts of climate change and aims to achieve a strong global political consensus in solving this issue. Consisting of 11 founding and 22 participating nations, the forum represents the voices of those who are most vulnerable yet least responsible for climate change. The forum began in 2009 under the chairmanship of the Maldives and was then passed to Kiribati in 2010. This year, this weekend, two weeks before the next UNFCCC conference of parties (COP) in Durban, the CVF is meeting in Bangladesh with heads of states of many vulnerable countries participating along with UN General Secretary, Ban Ki Moon. And it’s no wonder that these countries who face some of the most severe impacts of the climate crisis include the 350 ppm target in their official declaration.
