The UNFCCC is inviting experts to join its Roster of Experts to volunteer their specific expertise to the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage.
Relevant individuals registered on the roster will be contacted by the Executive Committee of the Warsaw International Mechanism to contribute their expertise in undertaking specific activities of the work plan of the Committee
If contacted experts are interested in working with the Committee as invited, voluntary technical work begins.
Potential Areas of Work
The Executive Committee invites voluntary expert contributions under the following three strategic workstreams of its work plan:
- Slow onset events which include increasing temperature, desertification, loss of biodiversity, land and forest degradation, glacial retreat, sea level rise, ocean acidification, and salinization;
- Non-economic losses which may include life, health, human mobility, territory, cultural heritage indigenous knowledge, societal/cultural identity biodiversity, and ecosystem services;
- Comprehensive risk management approaches which include assessment, reduction, transfer and retention.
