The term “loss and damage” is used to describe the manifestation of adverse climate change impacts which are not or cannot be avoided by adaptation and mitigation efforts. As a leading climate change research institution, ICCCAD aims to connect the ground realities of Loss and Damage from local to global to enable the most vulnerable to tackle Loss and Damage induced by Climate Change.

As the world enters the era of real losses anddamages attributable to human inducedclimate change, ICCCAD plans to focus itsattention on helping the Least DevelopedCountries as well as the world address Lossand Damage.
