As climate-vulnerable countries grapple with escalating climate impacts, the sluggish pace of international politics is glaringly out of step with the urgency of the crisis. Last year’s COP28 had some productive outcomes including the launch of the Loss and Damage Fund and a truth-telling Global Stocktake, which made clear that the world must transition away from fossil fuels. However, with weak and vague outcomes across the board on climate finance and support, ACT2025 is mounting pressure on countries to deliver strong and positive outcomes at COP29 in Azerbaijan this year.

Success at COP29 hinges on whether the world will prioritize the needs of the 3.6 billion people living in climate-vulnerable countries whose lives and livelihoods are at risk. In particular, climate vulnerable countries will be pushing for an ambitious, needs-based new climate finance goal, crucial for supporting the transition to low-emissions economies and building resilience against the impacts of climate change.

In an urgent call to action for justice and survival, the ACT2025 consortium lays out expectations for what must be achieved in the lead up to and at COP29 to meet the needs of climate vulnerable developing countries.
