Abstract

This literature review presents findings from available scientific evidence and other documentation on a range of approaches employed today in four regions of the world to address loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change. The literature review focuses on the types of approach and their levels of application, in particular examining the foundational resource requirements and cost-effectiveness of and the lessons learned from such approaches. The review follows a regional perspective, corresponding to the regional expert meetings for Africa, Latin America, Asia, and small island developing States which have taken place during 2012 as components of the work programme on loss and damage under the Subsidiary Body for Implementation
