Overview and Summary of Party Submissions on the Role of the Convention

Advance Version

Cover Overview and Summary

The document begins with a synthesis of the framing of loss and damage due to the adverse impacts of climate change articulated by the different Parties as well as the general views reflected in the submissions, followed by a section that details reflections of countries on the work programme (especially thematic area 2 – addressing loss and damage). Following from this, the document summarises the views on the role of the Convention and finally lays out more specific statements on concrete way forwards for a potential decision in Doha at COP 18 on the issue of loss and damage, including the establishment of an International mechanism as suggested by several groups of Parties.
