More Loss and Damage

Loss and damage continues to be a hot topic at COP19, and the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security has joined the fray with a new report that presents a number of case studies from different developing countries. Based upon interviews, surveys, and focus groups, the report presents empirical evidence of loss and damage. However, as it also notes that attribution of loss and damage to climate change is beyond the scope of work, it largely seems to provide evidence that extreme weather events has consequences, particularly for those most vulnerable.
