Climate change wiped out fifth of vulnerable countries’ wealth over last 2 decades – report V20 group of 55 economies reinforce demands for international funding for loss and damage
The Bangladesh Presidency of the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) ended its two-year term, and passed the CVF Presidency to Ghana, in a ceremony held today. The CVF Presidency represents 55 of the most climate-threatened countries, in their global fight against the climate emergency.
Climate change has eliminated one fifth of the wealth of the V20 over the last two decades: initial evidence shows that the V20 would have been 20% wealthier today had it not been for climate change and the losses it incurred for poor and vulnerable economies.
Ghana feels incredibly honored to accept this greater challenge to be the next CVF Presidency and represent the most vulnerable countries part of the CVF, and to build on all the great work which was done during the past 2 years of Bangladesh as CVF Chair.
