IDDRI Policy Brief 5/22

Volltext/Full text

The EU postulates global climate action leadership in the European Green Deal. This Policy Brief takes the findings of the latest IPCC report as a starting point to discuss the implications for the EU's role in the global governance of climate change with a particular focus on Loss and Damage policy and financing. It argues that the pertinent Glasgow Dialogue series provides the EU with an opportunity to demonstrate leadership by supporting the design of enhanced integrated approaches to climate risk governance and finance that better address Loss and Damage, and by putting adaptation and Loss and Damage on top of the COP27 agenda in Sharm El-Sheik, Egypt, in November 2022.
