About the Summit
Due to increased scientific evidence indicating plausible existential risks for a number of CVF member states to be incurred in the event of failure to achieve the long-term goal of the Paris Agreement to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius, a considerable global increase in national efforts as soon as possible, would be required to offer safeguard for the survival of most vulnerable nations.
Therefore, the 2018 CVF Summit is organized as part of the Talanoa Dialogue, which serves as an agreed mechanism for the promotion of enhanced national action by all nations party to the Paris Agreement by 2020.
This Summit is an opportunity for all nations to show leadership and commit to raising their level of ambition in solidarity with the most vulnerable. Heads of State/Government and high-level representatives of other partners are invited to participate in the Summit and demonstrate intentions to raise ambition, including in relation to updating their national targets.
