The achievements of the Lima Call for Climate Action are complemented with those attained in other COP20/CMP10 decisions.

A. BOOSTING THE “LOSSES AND DAMAGES” MECHANISM

“Losses and Damages” -a mechanism created in 2013 for situations in which climate change impacts are so large that they exceed the capacity of populations to face them- approved the initial work plan for two years and the composition of the Executive Committee.

B. NATIONAL ADAPTATION PLANS

Progress was made to reinforce the National Adaptation Plans (NAP) that will allow less developed and developing countries to have access to funding for the development of their NAPs and for the execution of activities.

C. LIMA WORK PLAN ON GENDER

Considered as a historical milestone, because it was adopted for the first time at a COP, the Work Plan on gender seeks to promote effective participation by women in the UNFCCC and strengthen their empowerment to transform them into important change agents. The program aims at progressing in implementing climate mandates and policies that are sensitive to gender considerations in all areas of negotiations.
The measure not only comprises a revision of all existing mandates related with gender implemented by the UNFCCC, but also implementing a training and sensitization process for delegates on climate policies sensitive to gender considerations, and education and capacity building for women delegates, among others.

D. MINISTRY DECLARATION ON EDUCATION AND SENSITIZATION

During COP20, the parties committed to strengthen the sensitization and education policies on the environment, a task that will fall on the Ministries of Environment in each country.
