MAJURO (Marshall Islands), Nov 23: Leaders at the Climate Vulnerable Forum have called on world's governments to raise the ambition of their climate targets by 2020 in order to save vulnerable nations threatened by warming beyond 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Chairing the first-of-its kind online Virtual Summit of more than 40 government leaders, President Hilda C. Heine of the Marshall Islands said: "Today we make history together. We are showing that more can be done with tools and means on hand than we might think."

Through the summit's "Jumemmej Declaration", the forum's leaders committed to strengthening their national climate efforts by 2020 in order to pressure world governments to act. "Jumemmej" is a Marshallese word of seafaring origin calling for vigilance to keep a watch against threats.
