Wit h the ongoing impacts of climate change\, the world is facing increased fr equency and severity of slow-onset and rapid-onset disasters\, which resul ts in a rise in climate-induced loss and damage. The extent of loss and da mage is directly related to the frequency and intensity of the event and t he degree of preparedness and prevention. Unfortunately\, these events the reby disproportionately impact those most vulnerable\, resulting in an enh anced need for humanitarian assistance in already affected communities.

 \;

The 25th Conference of Parties (COP) e stablished the Santiago Network of Loss and Damage (Santiago network) to < span class=SpellE>catalyse the technical assistance of relevant organisations\, bodies\, networks and experts\, for the implementation of relevant approaches for averting\, minimising and addressing loss and damage at the local\, nationa l and regional levels. The operationalisation of the Santiago network is in progress and the selection host secretariat is currently under process\, with two proponents received. \;

 \;

This interactive session will provide the spac e for a wide range of non-state stakeholders\, from frontline communities and humanitarian responders\, to share their experiences and knowledge\, a nd discuss the current progress of operationalisation of the Santiago network. It will provide a space to share concerns\, as well as recommendations on means to ensure a Santiago network that eff ectively meets the needs and creates long-term community resilience. \ ;

 \;

This event will build on the multi -stakeholder and cross-constituency collaboration that was initiated in th e SB58\, which facilitates knowledge sharing and unifies the non-state act ors' positions to ensure a timely and needs-based opera tionalisation of the Santiago network. \;

Objectives& nbsp\;

  • Provide a space for frontline communities and humanitarian re sponders\, to share their experiences and knowledge\, and discuss the curr ent progress of operationalisation of the Santia go network. \;
  • Generate recommendations from frontl ine communities and humanitarian responders about the o perationalisation of the Santiago network\, in regards to both tech nical assistants to address\, and means to engage non-state stakeholders a nd utilise its knowledge. \;
