In light of the UNFCCC Talanoa Facilitative Dialogue to take stock of global efforts to fulfill the Paris Agreement long-term goal to limit the increase in global temperatures to 1.5C, the CVF High-Level Meeting at Marrakech, Morocco in November 2016 resulted in a decision to hold a Summit for the Forum's members in 2018. Marshall Islands President and incoming Chair of the CVF announced that the Summit will be held entirely online on November 22, 2018 at the wake of the release of the IPCC report on 1.5C and right before the 24th session of the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties. This will make the CVF Summit the first ever virtual political gathering reducing emissions and creating new grounds for climate diplomacy. 
The 2018 CVF Virtual Summit aims to contribute to momentum and the raising of levels of climate action and ambition during the 2018-2020 period to safeguard the world’s most vulnerable communities from climate change impacts. The Summit seeks to encourage the sharing of stories and perspectives on climate risks, new national actions and opportunities related to climate action, supporting decisions that serve the collective good in accordance with the Pacific concept of “Talanoa”. The Summit is only open for leaders who will be ready to commit to enhancing ambition and action by 2020. The Climate Action Network (CAN) fully supports the CVF in holding this summit and its revolutionary approach to climate diplomacy as it completely corresponds with its objectives to see the full implementation of the Paris Agreement and reaching its goal of keeping warming below 1.5C Read more
