Over 40 Countries pledge to Run on 100% Renewable Energy by 2030
With the likes of Costa Rica and Cape Verde living on 100% renewable energy, many more nations want to follow in their footsteps. 43 of the world’s most disadvantaged countries have pledged to make this transition between 2030 and 2050.
The Climate Vulnerable Forum
These 43 countries are members of the Climate Vulnerable Forum which was established in 2009 and is made up of countries that are negatively affected by climate change. The forum refers to these global warming impacts as a result of heightened environmental and socio-economic vulnerabilities.
The countries involved seek a solution to the improve these negative impacts, and for these developing countries the answer is to run on 100% renewable energy.
The forum has also vowed to take action in helping to limit global warming by 1.5℃ above pre-industrial levels.
Rising Sea Levels
Bangladesh is one of the many countries suffering from the impacts of climate change, particularly in terms of their rising sea levels. Other countries such as the Marshall islands and Maldives have already suffered heavy flooding, which will only worsen if they don’t make the transition to renewable energy.
Which Countries are Most Affected by Climate Change?
|Vanuatu||Papua New Guinea||Sri Lanka||Comoros|
|Palau||Ghana||Saint Lucia||Burkina Faso|
|Philippines||Tuvalu||Costa Rica||South Sudan|
|Tunisia||Madagascar||Democratic Republic of Congo|
Transforming Our World
These 43 countries want to transform our world and reverse the effects of climate change by 2050 at the latest. This will hopefully lead other countries in the right direction until all have made the transition to renewable energy, lowering global warming and saving our environment.
