CVF Participating Countries

Our nations lie at the climate front-line and will disproportionately feel the impacts of global warming.

First Declaration of the Climate Vulnerable Forum Maldives, 10 November 2009

CVF Participating Countries

The Climate Vulnerable Forum brings together government leaders representing 43 developing countries vulnerable to climate change. The Forum is guided by operational modalities that characterize its open, inclusive and semi-formal approach.  The Manila Communique, Manila-Paris Declaration and the High Level Meeting at COP21 gave recognition to the current membership of the Forum’s 43 participating nations, expanding from 20 countries active in the Forum during 2011-2015, as below. Nations participating in the Climate Vulnerable Forum are also members of the Vulnerable Twenty. In addition, on 18 November 2016 at Marrakech during the 2016 Forum High Level Meeting, five new nations were confirmed as members of the Forum: Colombia, The Gambia, Lebanon, Palestine and Samoa.
