The Executive Committee is tasked with guiding the implementation of the functions of the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage.

Supervise the loss and damage workstream at the UN Climate Secretariat, support implementation of the work of the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage (workstream on human mobility in workplan), WIM Task Force on Displacement.
