This event brought together least developed countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to jointly generate a shared understanding on what is needed to tackle loss and damage. Tackling loss and damage is not straightforward and there isn’t one solution that fits all.
The causes and impacts of loss and damage are highly varied, from sudden climate shocks to long range slow-onset events, and result in economic and non-economic impacts, such as loss of cultural heritage, language or identity.
The International institute for Environment and Development (IIED), in partnership with ICCCAD, Risk-informed Early Action Partnership (REAP) and the British Red Cross, brought together LDCs, SIDS and other actors from vulnerable developing countries.
The event featured case studies and reflections from a panel, followed by a discussion about financing these practical loss and damage solutions.
