Loss and Damage in Vulnerable Countries Initiative

The Loss and Damage in Vulnerable Countries Initiative was initiated by the Government of Bangladesh (GoB) in order to move forward the debate on loss and damage for the benefit of the least developed countries (LDCs) and other vulnerable countries. With assistance from the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), a consortium of organisations, which includes Germanwatch, United Nations University-Institute for Environmental and Human Security (UNU-EHS), International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) and Munich Climate Insurance Initiative (MCII), was appointed to carry out this work. The overall strategic vision of the Initiative is to frame the debate on loss and damage to alter the way in which decision-makers and stakeholders perceive problems and solutions related to climate change.

The Loss and Damage in Vulnerable Countries Initiative is comprised of the following activity areas.
  • Building an understanding of the scope and significance of loss and damage associated with the adverse impacts of climate change.
  • Developing and co-creating an approach and vision for loss and damage among decision-makers and relevant stakeholders.
  • Assisting least developed countries (LDCs) and other vulnerable countries to develop a coherent approach to the loss and damage debate.
  • Identifying and beginning to take the steps needed to support a paradigm shift on loss and damage in the coming years.
