Loss and damage: climate reality in the 21st Century

In a new report, Climate Reality in the 21st Century, released in Paris, ActionAid, CARE and WWF say that with global temperatures already at 1 degree above pre-industrial levels, the need for money and regulations to deal with climate devastation are more critical than ever before. Current plans to mitigate and adapt to climate change (a more prominent focus of the climate negotiations) are insufficient, making it more and more difficult for vulnerable communities and ecosystems to adapt, the report says. This will lead to the unavoidable loss and damage of habitats around the world.
