As representatives of climate vulnerable countries, we refuse to be left out of efforts to design and deploy global strategies meant to avert increasing impacts of the climate crisis. Lasting climate solutions require considerable comprehensive reforms to the international financial architecture to immediately align with climate science.
The V20 Group, representing 68 of the world’s most systemically climate-threatened economies, under Ghana’s presidency of the Group, has outlined four fundamental priority areas to ensure a world economy fit-for-climate and supportive of its most vulnerable groups. This includes the need to mobilize an ambitious share of world GDP to secure a sustainable future for the global economy amid an escalating climate emergency, and a downscaling of financial resources that undermine the fight against climate change. This re-wiring of the global financial system must happen as soon as possible within the current decade. Against the backdrop of a global climate emergency, and launching this roadmap with the Accra V20 Senior Officials’ Meeting in the spring of 2023, the V20 will collaborate throughout the year including in Paris for the New Financial Pact and Nairobi for the Africa Climate Summit, culminating in engagements at the Marrakech IMF and World Bank Annual Meetings, to cement an international coalition behind a fit-for-climate global financial system at COP28 in Dubai.
