Klima

Wir stehen vor zwei großen Klima-Herausforderungen. Erstens: Unbewältigbare Ausmaße des Klimawandels zu vermeiden - durch Klimaschutz. Zweitens: Unvermeidbare Auswirkungen des Klimawandels zu bewältigen - durch Anpassung. Zu beiden arbeitet Germanwatch an gerechten und effizienten Lösungen.

Loss & Damage: The theme of slow onset impact

This policy briefing sets out a number of the issues relating to the slow onset portion of the climate change loss and damage agenda. It is not meant to be an exhaustive analysis of this new and sometimes complex subject. Instead, it should serve to introduce the concept of loss and damage related to slow onset climate change hazards and provide sign posts to guide further investigation of the subject – in particular for those institutions, experts and country representatives participating in the current work programme on loss and damage under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). >> mehr

Framing the Loss and Damage debate

A conversation starter by the Loss and Damage in Vulnerable Countries Initiative, Advance version

This document outlines initial thoughts by the ‘Loss and Damage in Vulnerable Countries Initiative’ to provide some conceptual and framing input into the loss and damage negotiations under the UNFCCC. Given both the preliminary nature of these discussions and the complexity of the issue of loss and damage, a precise definition may not be necessary and in fact may even be counter-productive at this early stage. Instead at this point in the discussion it may be more useful provide a spectrum of relevant scientific and policy perspectives and areas of expertise in an attempt to inform ongoing dialogue. >> mehr
