Raise the ambition!

The Climate Vulnerable Summit, convened by the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF), called for governments to "raise the ambition" of climate targets to keep global warming to the 1.5°C limit and save vulnerable nations.

A five-point vision was relayed: 1) climate change dangers are kept to an absolute minimum; 2) maximum advantage is taken of the benefits of climate action; 3) maximum resilience is achieved for people, indigenous groups, livelihoods, infrastructure, cultures and ecosystems; 4) the SDGs and Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) targets are achieved and, where possible, exceeded or accomplished ahead of schedule; and 5) LDCs and low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) emerge as wealthy nations through strong economic growth.
