The Executive Committee of the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage guides the implementation of the functions of the Mechanism.
The current rolling workplan of the Executive Committee was endorsed by Parties at COP 23 (November 2017). The Executive Committee implements its workplan through coordination and collaboration with various stakeholders.
Four thematic expert groups working respectively on slow onset events, non-economic losses, displacement related to the adverse impacts of climate change, and comprehensive risk management approaches, play a major role in carrying out the activities of the workplan.
The Executive Committee comprises twenty members from Parties to the Convention. It meets at least twice a year in a setting open to observers. Parties provide guidance to the Executive Committee once a year.
