At COP19 (November 2013) in Warsaw, Poland, the COP established the Warsaw International Mechanism for loss and damage (WIM) associated with Climate Change Impacts to address loss and damage associated with impacts of climate change, including extreme events and slow onset events, in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.

The implementation of the functions of the Loss and Damage Mechanism will be guided by the Executive Committee under the guidance of the COP.
