Loss and damage from climate change impacts is the major theme of the adaptation negotiation in 2012. Inching towards a decision in Doha on this important topic, negotiators, decision makers and experts are meeting in a series of regional expert workshops over the course of the summer to flesh out regional pathways to address loss and damage from climate change. This report features from the first work-shop in Addis Ababa from the 13th to 15th of June. It provides an overview of the sessions, and an analysis of the discussions with possible meaning for the upcoming UNFCCC work on loss and damage in 2012.
