The year 2020 is a key milestone, as countries are revising their climate action plans - known as Nationally Determined
Contributions (NDCs) - to be submitted to the UN Climate Change Secretariat on or before 31 December, 2020. Now is the best
opportunity to ensure loss and damage is included as a core component of these national plans. At the very least loss and damage
needs to be recognised as an indicator of progress on climate action, with the scale of loss and damage decreasing as our efforts
to mitigate and adapt are ramped up.
Currently, there is no formal guidance on how to incorporate loss and damage in the NDCs. This policy brief provides guidance
to countries and other interested stakeholders on how to include loss and damage in their respective NDCs, outlining four simple
steps to integrate loss and damage into their climate plans.
