Abstract: The issues of loss and damage became one of the key points during the Doha conference of UNFCCC in 2012. This paper analyzed the positions and key problems of main negotiation groups, by reviewing the background and process of negotiation, and revealed the fundamental reasons for slow progress on loss and damage talk are that developed countries hold a negative attitude for their historical responsibility and even attempt to transfer responsibility to developing countries. If developing countries want to succeed in loss and damage talk during COP19, they should enhance their unity and ensure that international loss and damage mechanism possesses some key functions such as finance, concrete actions, assessment and report.

Key words: climate change, negotiation, loss and damage, progress
