Cop 19 mechanism for loss and damage

Head of the Namibian delegation to the COP 19 conference, Dr Moses Amweelo.Namibia has embraced the “Warsaw international mechanism for loss and damage” that was established at the recently concluded United Nations Climate Change Conference nineteenth session of the Conference of the Parties (UNFCC-COP 19) held in Warsaw, Poland.
The mechanism was established under the Cancun Adaptation Framework, subject to review at the twenty-second session of the Conference of the Parties from November to December 2016. It is formed to address loss and damage associated with the impact of climate change, including extreme events and slow onset events, in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.
