Other Initiatives: CVF Costa Rica Action Plan

A Joint Action Plan of the Forum was adopted under the Costa Rica CVF Presidency for the critical 2013-2015 period for climate change policy. It includes initiatives in the domain of climate change finance, health, labour, migration and other sectors together with partners including the World Bank Group and the United Nations Development Programme  (UNDP). The Action Plan was released in November 2013 at the UN Climate Change Conference at Warsaw, Poland (COP19) – find out more here.
