|Comments||Submission by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) supported by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Norwegian Refugee
Council (NRC), to the 6th session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-Term Cooperative Action (AWG-LCA 6) under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) (1-12 June 2009, Bonn, Germany).
This note relates to the implementation of paragraph 1(c) of the Bali Action Plan and requests UNFCCC negotiators to ensure recognition in the follow-up Protocol of the need for early action to prevent statelessness as outlined below, and to permit funding for adaptation to be made available for such early actions.
