Social Protection to Reduce Climate Loss and Damage: An Economy-of-Wellbeing approach for leaving no-one behind (CSocD61 Side Event)
Broadcasting UN Entity
Partners would discuss whether one approach could be to channel the Loss and Damage financing through the nationally owned social protection channels in the African Union member states, e.g. the Social Protection Cash Transfer programmes, the Social Protection Public Works programmes and the Public Employment programmes.
The main goal of the side event is to exchange ideas between the African Union, Government of Finland, ILO, UN-Women and other partners. Specifically the partners will discuss what would be the optimal ways to ensure that Climate Loss and Damage Financing will be reaching vulnerable groups (women, youth, persons with disabilities) in the most vulnerable countries (e.g. in low-income Africa), and that it effectively compensates for their losses and damage caused by the climate change.
