Closed negotiations have begun at the UN Climate Change conference. Parties are looking at two key issues behind closed doors: national adaptation plans and loss and damage. 

Saleemul Huq, IIED’s Senior Fellow in IIED's Climate Change group reports that there has been more discussion on climate change adaptation: “far more than there have been in previous COPs.” One of the day’s side events focussed on the economics of climate change adaptation and a high level round table also discussed climate adaptation.
