Online Discussion: Who Will Pay the Cost of Climate Change?

  • DATE / TIME:

    Losses and damage from climate change impacts are making headlines, but will they prompt our leaders to act fast in response? The world’s governments must curb greenhouse gas emissions quickly, and rich countries must help poor, climate-affected countries to recover their losses.

    The forthcoming Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Doha, Qatar, later this year could be a defining moment for action on this agenda.

    Alertnet and CDKN will sponsor a live debate with loss and damage experts, on Thursday 22 November on the question of “Who will pay the cost for losses and damages from climate change”?
