GLASGOW CLIMATE DIALOGUES: NO PROGRESS ON LOSS AND DAMAGE

There seems to have been no progress in finding common solutions between the conventionally defined countries of the global south and north, visions diverge profoundly, and the discussion so far has been dominated by insurance approaches to the problem.

With the choice of this theme, an attempt was made to link the traditional work of the Commission, dedicated to the full implementation of the rights of women, girls and children, to the climate issue, which had not yet been officially addressed by this UN body.
