The societies and communities most impacted by the effects of climate change are often those that did the least to contribute to the issue and grappling with socio-economic inequality, poverty and governance challenges. Despite this, these countries struggle to get adequate funds for climate mitigation, adaptation, and resilience. More problematically, where the scale of climate damage is irreversible, there are little to no funds to support those communities.

This session will consider: 

  • How do we accelerate global support on the delicate issue of loss and damage?   
  • Can a debt cancellation help developing nations to widen their scope to act on climate?  
  • What are the main blocks/barriers to these agendas and how can they be addressed?
