Climate Change's Controversial Policy: Loss & Damage



There’s a climate change policy that governments have been debating for decades. The USA recently even tried (and failed) to have the words removed from the latest IPCC report (AR6 WGII). This policy is: “Loss & Damage”.

Also called “Climate Reparations”, Loss & Damage is a way of seeking climate justice in the face of disasters, and will be a major talking point at this year’s climate negotiations – COP27 in Egypt. So what is Loss & Damage, why is it so important for climate action, and why have countries been arguing about it for so long?
