Contents Notes
1. Climate Change Governance -- 2. Approaches for Assessing Loss and Damage -- 3. International Environmental Law -- 4. Global Climate Finance -- 5. New Frameworks for Financing and Governance of Loss and Damage -- 6. Concluding Observations. This text works to establish essential foundations and guidelines in the current process of providing strategies, mechanisms and resources for mitigating loss and damage from the adverse impacts of climate change and climate variability. This builds on the groundwork done by the UNFCCC and other entities to facilitate the processes at the international level, pursuing a pragmatic approach and the objective specification of relevant frameworks for further actions. The primary goal is the development of integrated approaches to the assessment and reduction of loss and damage due to climate change (including climate variability), encompassing both economic and legal dimensions. The publication is aimed at readers in top-level policymaking and strategy development on the national and international level, as well as academia.
