V20 Ministers of Finance will convene in Washington DC for the third V20 Ministerial Dialogue on 6 October 2016. The meeting will mark the transition of presidencies from the founding Chair, Philippines, to Ethiopia, who assumed the Chair of the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) in August 2016. The event will present updates on key initiatives launched by the V20, including the Global Preparedness Partnership. It will also facilitate the sharing of presentations from members on national experiences of climate finance. The Dialogue is expected to conclude with presentations from the three V20 Focus Groups established in the 2nd V20 Ministerial Dialogue in April 2016, outlining next steps in the areas of Advocacy and Partnerships, Climate Accounting and Risk.
