A Loss and Damage briefer and our demands towards COP28
Last COP27, countries all over the world decided to establish new funding arrangements for loss and damage. Part of this is the creation of the Loss and Damage Fund which is the result of the decades of struggle of the peoples and communities of the Global South for a dedicated fund that will address, avert, and minimize loss and damage.
But as the Loss and Damage Fund is still being deliberated and is yet to be operational, the peoples and communities of the Global South lay out their demands in the financial arrangements, governance, and principles that must be championed in and by the Fund–all based in climate justice and reparations.
In this briefer, the basics of Loss and Damage are explored, as well as the questions and answers regarding the principles and demands of the peoples and communities of the Global South on the Loss and Damage Fund and Loss and Damage Finance, in general.
