Loss and Damage in the UN Climate Regime: Prospects for Paris

Meinhard Doelle


This paper provides an overview of the Warsaw Mechanism on Loss and Damage and the treatment of the issue under the UNFCCC up to COP 20 in Lima, Peru. The gradual emergence of the issue in the climate negotiations is tracked, leading to the creation of the Warsaw Loss and Damage Mechanism in 2013. The Chapter considers the current state of the issue in the regime, and the prospects for loss and damage in the post 2020 climate regime to be negotiated in Paris in December, 2015.
