About the event
As the climate crisis escalates, vulnerable communities globally are suffering from increasing loss and damage due to extreme weather and environmental shifts. In the most vulnerable contexts, e.g. SIDS and LDCs, the role of disaster and climate risk management and humanitarian action is increasingly recognised to help in averting, minimising and addressing losses and damages.
This interactive session aims to move from discussion to action by focusing on two pivotal areas: practical solutions and implementation support. Experts will share proven strategies for tackling loss and damage, including climate-resilient infrastructure, ecosystem-based adaptations, and early warning systems, supplemented by case studies and perspectives of experts based on their lived experience from varied contexts.
