The Loss and Damage Youth Coalition (LDYC) makes it loud and clear that the youth demand that Loss and Damage finance is delivered at COP27 as a matter of climate justice. Image Credit: Loss and Damage Collaboration, Copyright 2022 ©.

The 2023 Bonn Climate Conference (SB 58) will be held from the 5th to the 15th of June 2023 at the World Conference Center Bonn (WCCB), in Bonn, Germany.

Issues relevant to Loss and Damage that will be discussed at SB58 include: matters relating to the Santiago Network for Loss and Damage (SNLD), The Global Stocktake of the Paris Agreement (GST), the New Collective Quantified Goal on climate finance (NCQG) and the Second Glasgow Dialogue on Loss and Damage which will inform the work of the Transitional Committee to provide recommendation on the Loss and Damage Fund and Funding arrangements at COP 28. 

This brief provides a summary of each of these issues and how they relate to Loss and Damage, details of the discussions that will take place at SB 58, the Loss and Damage Collaboration’s expectations for progress on each issue, and contextualization of how discussions at SB 58 will shape the road to COP28.
