  • How can the agreement support countries so they can both adapt to the existing and future impacts and be able to manage loss and damage?
  • What kind of finance provisions should the agreement include and for what?
  • How could the agreement provide transparency and accountability through its Measurement, Reporting, and Verification provisions?
  • What kind of compliance mechanism should be included?
  • What legal form should the agreement include for which provisions?
  • What incentives could the agreement include?
