NELD Expert Workshop 2015

On 26-27 August 2015 more than 40 researchers and policy makers participated in a workshop on non-economic loss and damage (NELD) in the context of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), organized by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) in cooperation with Climate Analytics and United Nations University – Institute for Environment and Human Security.

Participants engaged in a discussion on addressing NELD in the context of the UNFCCC. The emerging discussion on NELD helps to broaden the view of climate impacts beyond adaptation limits and highlights what climate change means to those affected. It pushes policy-makers and researchers to think critically about the climate impact indicators we use and about whose rights and perspectives count in defining dangerous climate change.
