Support for the 2011 Climate Vulnerable Forum

The Government of Bangladesh requested support from CDKN in their capacity as hosts of the 2011 Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF).

The CVF is the first global partnership of nations from Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Pacific. It was formed to deliver a powerful message to the world about the need for urgent action on climate change.  

Calling on all nations to accept an equitable and ambitious international climate change agreements and getting nations to commit to working together to find solutions for adapting to climate change, LEAD Pakistan and CDKN assisted the CVF through a range of policy and coordination activities.
