The session will contribute to the Plan of Action of the Technical Expert Group on Comprehensive Risk Management (TEG-CRM), based on the mandate of the Warsaw International Mechanism (WIM) in promoting comprehensive risk management to avert, minimize and address residual risks and unavoidable climate change impacts.
Discussants will reflect on actionable recommendations for further engagement. Discussion outcomes will be captured in a summary document and reported to the TEG-CRM.
