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.
