    Excerpt from the article by John Vidal:

    New research by the UN University backed by the Overseas Development Institute’s climate and development knowledge network suggests that developing countries have a strong case for compensation.

    Researchers visited five countries to assess how communities were coping with escalating climate change…. People, they found, had few options to resist climate change events beyond their normal coping strategies. But these broke down if the crisis was repeated.
