Vulnerable Nations Call on Payment for Climate Damages from World’s Wealthiest and Most Polluting Countries
The Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) & V20 have launched “Payment Overdue”, an online social media campaign to confront the global injustice of the growing fallout of the planetary climate emergency that affects the world’s vulnerable and least responsible populations most of all.
The CVF has decided to make a loss and damage its key communications issue in 2022 by launching an online social campaign entitled “Payment Overdue.” The campaign is asking for the biggest polluting nations to finally pay up for Loss & Damage. It aims to raise awareness of L&D, build support and attract funds to address L&D, and it aims to promote sharing of L&D solutions.
It is a great pleasure to see you all in person, ready to collaborate, coordinate and make a difference for our nations and the most vulnerable. We would like to thank Germany and Egypt for hosting this crucial global meeting in the run-up to COP27.
Today the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) and GLOBE International publish the first detailed compendium of climate change laws and policies in 48 of the world’s 55 most climate vulnerable nations.
