Session Description

Climate extremes cause devastating impacts across the globe. These are impacts of slow-onset processes like sea-level rise or rising temperatures, and extreme events such as floods, hurricanes and tropical cyclones. Loss and Damage – which means climate impacts exceeding the adaptive capacity of countries, communities, and ecosystems – is already happening and has ramifications for many Pacific Island Countries. The session will focus on the economic and non-economic aspects of loss and damage and how Pacific communities are dealing with everyday lived realities.
