This paper reviews the evidence on slow-onset events presented in the Special Report on Climate Change and Land (SRCCL) and the Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC). It provides an overview of the state of the art on the eight types of slow-onset events and helps to identify gaps and challenges in understanding their nature, their impact and effective management approaches.

This paper evaluates possible sources of finance for addressing loss and damage from slow-onset climate events in developing countries. While insurance schemes are not appropriate, levies and taxes are seen as relatively predictable, adequate, transparent, and additional. The results confirm that current options for sustainably and equitably financing loss and damage from slow-onset events are limited. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to: SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production)
This paper investigates approaches to planned relocation as one possible response to slow-onset climate change impacts and principles to inform the design of a fair and effective funding system. This article relates to SDGs 10, 15 & 17 and is indirectly related to SDG 11 and SDG 13.

A comprehensive loss and damage finance taxonomy and framework identifies a set of finance options for supporting slow-onset driven key systems as they will need avoid breaching soft and hard limits: natural systems and social systems. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to SDG 13 (Climate Action).
Land and ecosystem degradation increase the risks of loss and damage during droughts, whereas well-adapted human practices and policies can enable society to (re)build resilience. A review of land and ecosystem degradation in Africa highlights opportunities for proactive planning and policies and actions needed to connect and fill gaps in the present systems. In addition to the main SDGs, this article is indirectly related to SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).
This paper reviews how and why Traditional and Local Knowledge (TLK) needs to be integrated into climate change adaptation in Latin America and Caribbean. TLK systems and practical actions can collaborate with scientific knowledge in impact and risk assessment to develop both short and long-term planning. In addition to the main SDGs, this article is indirectly related to SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).
