Over 40 Countries pledge to Run on 100% Renewable Energy by 2030

100% Renewable Energy

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.
