Financing Mechanisms for Loss and Damage
17:00 - 18:00 CEST, 11:00- 12:00 EST
This event explored transatlantic climate diplomatic avenues to enhance financing for Loss and Damage. Leveraging financing for Loss and Damage remains an on-going challenge for this year’s COP27 and beyond. This conversation with experts in the field explored how initiatives such as the Global Shield Against Climate Risks, pledges for financing such as Scotland’s direct financial commitment at COP26 and technical work streams such as the Santiago Network can harness and cement coordinated, targeted, and efficient preventative Loss and Damage measures.
