Development and Climate Days 2013
Development and Climate Days (D&C Days) opened on 16 November 2013, in Warsaw, Poland, on the periphery of the nineteenth Conference of the Parties (COP 19) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Jointly supported by the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre (RCCC), the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the event focused on “Innovative approaches, incisive dialogue for climate-smart development”.

IISD reporting Services covered the first day of the event, which was facilitated by RCCC and the GEF and focused on showcasing the experience of adaptation practitioners from the field. During the morning session, participants engaged in “lightning talks” on emerging issues, solutions and actors. Discussion topics included effective implementation of national adaptation programmes of action (NAPA) priorities; ecosystem-based adaptation; and integration of climate risk and vulnerability analysis for effective adaptation financing. This was followed by a participatory game titled Climate Attribution Under Loss & Damage: Risking, Observing, Negotiating (CAULDRON), facilitated by RCCC.

In the afternoon, participants discussed challenges and innovations from the field, based on learning about adaptation projects and programmes financed through the Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF), Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF) and the GEF’s Strategic Priority for Adaptation. A high-level panel on loss and damage followed, where participants emphasized the urgent need for global solidarity in acknowledging and addressing climate impacts. A reception followed the formal programme for the day, which included an interview panel on reaching the local level with adaptation finance.

Funding for coverage of this event has been provided by the GEF and RCCC

At the start of the "lightning talks", adaptation practitioners provide brief introductions to the topics to be discussed in a "world cafe" format, with participants moving from one table to the other.

Participants played “Climate Attribution Under Loss & Damage: Risking, Observing, Negotiating (CAULDRON)” – a game in which participants assume the roles of: a farmer forced to make planting decisions in a changing climate; a scientist assessing the influence of greenhouse gas emissions on drought risk; and a UN negotiator establishing a mechanism to cope with loss and damage, and deciding how to distribute resources with incomplete scientific information about the distribution of climate change impacts.
