Least developed countries (LDCs) are facing increasingly devastating impacts of climate change that are leading to loss and damage. As LDCs revise their climate action plans, known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), they should provide concrete evidence about loss and damage. This can help LDCs make the case for additional climate finance, technology and capacity-building support needed by them to tackle loss and damage.

This paper analyses how LDCs are currently reporting loss and damage in their NDCs and National Adaptation Plans, identifies gaps or issues in coverage, and suggests a framework for addressing these gaps.
