Pacific Island nations, such as Fiji, have played a key role in global negotiations and elevating the issue of climate-related loss and damage on negotiation agendas. In October a 2-day workshop on “Loss and Damage and the Climate Negotiations” was conducted with the goal of strengthening collaborations and knowledge sharing.

On the 13th and 14th October, 2022, a 2-day workshop on “Loss and Damage and the Climate Negotiations” was conducted at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva, Fiji. The workshop is a collaboration between Linköping University, The University of Fiji, the Ministry of Taukei Affairs, Pacific Islands Development Forum and the ANU Institute for Climate, Energy & Disaster Solutions.

The goal of the workshop was to strengthen collaboration and knowledge sharing, bringing  together an audience of industry leaders, decision-makers working on environmental and climate issues in Pacific island states, researchers, NGOs, representatives from communities dealing with loss and damage impacts and media. Among other representatives from Linköping University, assistant professor Stephen Woroniecki, attended the event. In the video below he talks about the experience, what issues was discussed and what was achieved at the workshop.
