The US and EU must support climate loss and damage action

Anne Christianson and Dennis Tänzler urge the United States and European Union to support climate loss and damage action at next month’s United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change conference.

From unprecedented flooding in Yellowstone National Park to historic wildfires right outside of London, climate change once again directly altered many people’s lives in the United States and Europe this summer.

Yet climate change still disproportionately affects vulnerable nations that have contributed least to the problem, a fact made devastatingly clear by the ongoing flooding crises in Pakistan and Sudan, for example, where more than 30 million people have been displaced and where disease and widespread hunger now threaten further losses.
