in the climate change regime we have the obligation of industrialized countries because of their historic responsibility to to have brought the problem about and they have to make payments to developing countries to help them on one hand to mitigate climate change but for these
countries even more importantly to adapt to climate change and adaptation is a
topic that has become increasingly important or is getting more and more important as we already see today the effects of climate change and it is it is clear that mitigation whatever we do will not solve the problem fast enough for some countries to have very serious
adverse effects and that we have we have
adaptation payments inadequate complicated not enough insufficient but it is there now since it only very recently in the last two years a new topic has emerged in the UN Framework Convention and that is the topic of loss and damage and that takes adaptation or step further and that means that there are countries that say we cannot adapt any longer we will there are their effect that climate change has on our country that are not adaptable or we can't adapt to those there will be long-lasting and/or permanent damage the most extreme is is my country is disappearing it is what is happening in

world says is waiting minute you know legally tell me that I have caused that storm you know tell me let my emissions from Massachusetts in 1890
