Views and information on elements to be included in the work programme on loss and damage. Submissions from Parties and relevant organizations.
The Conference of the Parties (COP), at its sixteenth session, invited Parties and relevant organizations to submit to the secretariat, by 21 February 2011, their views and information on what elements should be included in the work programme to address loss and damage associated with climate change impacts in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change, including the following:
(a) Possible development of a climate risk insurance facility to address impacts associated with severe weather events;
(b) Options for risk management and reduction, risk sharing and transfer mechanisms such as insurance, including options for micro-insurance, and resilience-building, including through economic diversification;
(c) Approaches for addressing rehabilitation measures associated with slow onset events;
(d) Engagement of stakeholders with relevant specialized expertise.
The COP requested the secretariat to compile these submissions into a miscellaneous document to be made available by the thirty-fourth session of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation. The secretariat has received 41 such submissions. In accordance with the procedure for miscellaneous documents, the 22 submissions from Parties, the nine submissions from United Nations organizations and the one submission from an intergovernmental organization are attached and reproduced in the languages in which they were received and without formal editing. In line with established practice, the nine submissions from non-governmental organizations have been posted on the UNFCCC website
