13th Bonn Dialogues: Concept note
Research shows that many countries and communities worldwide are unable to adapt to changes in climate patterns: loss and damage is becoming a reality. In economic terms, the losses and damages from climate change are expected to be significant. However, economic losses are not the whole story. Climate change effects will also produce a variety of non‐economic losses that, if not recognized and addressed, will lead to inefficient decision‐making and perpetuate social injustices.
