G20 must follow vulnerable countries' lead on climate action

"Vulnerable nations see the 1.5°C target as a development opportunity rather than a threat. The Forum recently co-published a report with the UNDP which clearly shows how striving for 1.5°C actually triggers economic growth, creates jobs, improves energy access and public health and helps minimize critical climate risks. The CVF officially launched the Vulnerable 20 Group of Finance Ministers (V20) a month before the Paris talks to look at how to mobilize more investments in climate resilience and low-carbon development. To establish a strong cooperation with the G20, the group of the largest economies, is one of the means for the V20 to reach that goal." | via German Watch #G20 #TheCVF #ClimateAction #1o5C #V20Group
