Loss and damage: from the global to the local

This briefing responds to the landmark decision taken at the 18th Conference of the Parties (COP18) in Doha to establish institutional arrangements to address loss and damage at COP19. Using Bangladesh as an example, it highlights the need to address loss and damage in comprehensive risk management frameworks, facilitate crosssectoral collaboration and integrate disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation agendas.

In a similar way, the briefing argues that local-level research in nine developing countries suggests targeting adaptation support better, providing policymakers with signals about the limits to adaptation and involving communities in decision-making processes. It finally calls for parties to have these and other needs in mind at COP19 in Warsaw if they are to establish institutional arrangements to mobilise the necessary action and support.
