As the climate crisis escalates, vulnerable communities globally are suffering from increasing loss and damage (L&D) due to extreme weather and environmental shifts.
This interactive session aims to move from discussion to action by focusing on two pivotal areas: practical solutions and implementation support.
Experts will share proven strategies for tackling L&D supplemented by case studies and perspectives of experts based on their lived experience from varied contexts.
The session will also delve into the critical aspect of turning these solutions into actionable projects, exploring innovative financing mechanisms, technical assistance, and effective delivery methods.
Attendees can expect to deepen their understanding of the complexities surrounding climate change L&D, learn about financial and technical support mechanisms, and have opportunities for multi-stakeholder networking to catalyze future collaborative efforts.
Linking the international level, the interactive session will discuss what is specifically needed from the L&D fund to support the practical solutions discussed during the session.
