The Dialogue provides an opportunity for Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) member and observer countries of the CVF Pacific region to share challenges, successes and experiences in climate change policy, and develop collective policy priorities.
The CVF Regional Dialogue will be co-hosted by the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and Bangladesh, as CVF Chair, and aims to identify and promote headline climate change policy priorities for vulnerable developing countries of the CVF from the Pacific region.
The CVF Pacific Regional Dialogue’s outcomes, including a CVF regional communique, will feed into the global deliberations of the CVF ahead of and during the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) and contribute to the development of global momentum for the shared agenda of climate threatened nations throughout 2021.
The Dialogue will be held in a virtual format and includes a meeting of experts on 1st September 2021 (3:00pm–7:00pm MHT) preparatory to its ministerial segment on 3rd September 2021 (4:30pm–6:00pm MHT). A dedicated half-day training for the CVF’s regional members and observers, organized by United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), will be held on 2nd September 2021 ( 1:30pm–5:30pm MHT).
The CVF Pacific Regional Dialogue follows Africa and Middle East Regional Dialogue, and the Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Dialogue.
