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.
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.
Bangladesh took over the Presidency of the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) in 2020 for the second time. We managed to steer the Forum’s work through the COVID-19 pandemic. We feel relieved that we could achieve most of our objectives and more.
We need to act to leave this world better than we got it.
While contributing less than 0.47% of global emissions, Bangladesh is one of the most climate-vulnerable countries.
