Climate change will not affect everyone equally — both domestically and internationally. Currently fellow Anna Abraham has a story up on how developing nations and small island states are working to bring Loss and Damage finance to the forefront of the conversation.

"In response to climate disasters, vulnerable communities rely on adaptation measures (eg. building flood defenses such as embankments) to survive; but these efforts can only go so far. Based on existing emission trends, climate change has dramatically increased the number of extreme weather events, making many disasters completely unavoidable. The social and fiscal impacts of these unavoidable events are referred to as 'loss and damage.'"
