Expert Group on non-economic losses
 
The Executive Committee established an expert group to develop inputs and recommendations to enhance data on and knowledge of reducing the risk of and addressing non-economic losses, including how to factor these into the planning and elaboration of measures to address loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change, at Excom 3 (April 2016).

The work of the Expert Group will contribute to enhancing data on and knowledge of non-economic losses associated with the adverse effects of climate change and identify ways forward for reducing the risk of and addressing non-economic losses with specific focus on potential impacts within regions (Action Area 4 of the initial two-year workplan of the Executive Committee).
