Submission to the UNFCCC Executive Committee call for inputs for the initial two-year workplan for the implementation of the functions of the Warsaw international mechanism on loss and damage associated with climate change impacts

This paper presents UNISDR's primary role in relation to loss and damage and elaborates on the actions UNISDR undertakes that could support and enhance the Warsaw Mechanism's Executive Committee plans on: (i) enhancing knowledge and understanding of comprehensive risk management approaches to address loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change, including slow onset impacts; and (ii) strengthening dialogue, coordination, coherence and synergies among relevant stakeholders.

The paper calls for loss and damage to promote local and national owned disaster loss data and related risk assessments for more effective planning and prioritization of climate adaptation actions and climate risk management policies.
