Virtual Panel Session

The 2nd Annual Conference on Global Climate Governance in the Face of Obstruction (31 May – 2 June 2023), organized by the Climate Social Science Network (CSSN)- a global network headquartered at Brown University in the USA, addresses some of the latest issues in climate policy, focusing on institutions and actors that block progress: finance and loss and damage, opposition to renewables siting, and climate obstruction and state-owned enterprises and petro-states. The conference seeks to engage participants from the Global North and South, international organization representatives, researchers and civil society actors for substantive science-policy dialogue. The session “Funding Loss and Damage: Lessons from Obstruction in Climate and Development Finance”, scheduled for 31 May 2023, 16:30 – 18:00 h CEST (virtual event), co-hosted by the German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS), will discuss obstruction of Loss and Damage finance in the negotiations under the UN climate regime (Panel 1), and how can multilateral climate finance, humanitarian aid and ODA be harnessed to help overcome obstruction of Loss and Damage funding (Panel 2).
