UNFCCC informal pre sessional meeting of Parties to exchange further views on the possible recommendations on loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change

 

24 November 2012
Doha, Qatar



Background

 

By decision 1/CP.16, the COP established a work programme to consider approaches to address loss and damage associated with climate change impacts in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change, and requested the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) to agree on activities to be undertaken under the work programme (decision  1/CP.16, paragraphs 25-29)

By decision 7/CP.17 (page 5 of the report), the COP agreed on a set of activities to address issues related to the following thematic areas:

  • Thematic area I - Assessing the risk of loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change and current knowledge on the same
  • Thematic area II - A range of approaches to address loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change, including impacts related to extreme weather events and slow onset events, taking into consideration experience at all levels
  • Thematic area III - The role of the Convention in enhancing the implementation of approaches to address loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change

At its thirty-sixth session, the SBI requested its Chair to convene an informal presessional meeting of Parties, in conjunction with its thirty-seventh session, subject to the availability of resources and conflicts of timing, to exchange further views on the possible recommendations on loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change (FCCC/SBI/2012/15, paragraph 155).
