This document synthesises the key findings of just over a hundred documents in the scientific literature. It has been prepared as input to one of the activities undertaken in the European Union-funded SINCERE project (http://www.jpi-climate.eu/sincere).
The document consists of two sections. The first section outlines the process followed to select the literature, and gives and overview of the documents reviewed. Details are provided in Annex 1 and Annex 2, respectively. The second section presents brief summaries of the individual documents, organised by theme. Annex 3 provides full references for all documents, sorted alphabetically.
The information provided in this document does not represent a proper review of the literature, as the time required to complete one far exceeds the time available. Instead, a scan of the scientific literature is presented, to highlight salient issues with regard to research on loss and damage in small-island developing states in the Pacific.Download
