Study on Loss and Damage Financing Solutions and Sources


Publish date
Climate change leads to more severe and frequent disasters, increasing heat and sea level rise. When natural or man-made systems meet soft or hard adaptation limits, it can lead to loss and damage (L&D). L&D is unequally distributed, affecting the most vulnerable and least developed countries the worst. The Nordic Council of Ministers’ Working Group for Climate and Air (NKL) has commissioned a project in which the main objective is to map, identify and further develop potential solutions and sources for financial support to developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to climate change induced L&D. This study is a key outcome from this project. In short, this study’s focus is on how to enhance and improve existing solutions and sources and innovate and create new sources of finance that can be used for financing L&D actions.
