A Word from the V20 Chair

“The V20 is a group of Finance Ministers from countries most vulnerable to climate change. We established this group recognizing the power and potential of finance as an integral tool in solving the climate challenges we face. Unified in our vulnerability, the economic threats and difficulties arising from climate change, and a heightened sense of urgency on the issue, we stand together on the front lines of a battle we most certainly cannot afford to lose.” Cesar Purisima, Secretary of Finance of the Philippines
