Are people injured and climate change paid for?
From storms and floods to heat and drought, research has shown that more and more disasters are starting to worsen, or that they may be the result of climate change. Seasonal events that start slowly such as rising sea levels, sea acidity, loss of agricultural land or glacial slopes are also happening – sea level rise now in the area of 3 to 4 mm per year.
All countries will be affected by climate change, but some of the countries most affected have done little to initiate. These countries are often the ones that lack the resources to deal with the disaster.
Inequality has been acknowledged by the leaders of the developed and historic countries, who have established it way to send financial assistance to developing countries to help them reduce emissions and to adapt to the effects of climate change.
But contributing to another issue, known as “loss and damage,” has become a very politically sensitive issue, and to date has little support. The term refers to the unpredictable effects of climate change, explains Love of Trouble, a consultant for nonprofit CARE. “It’s about revenge, and fair justice,” he says. “It is the deforestation that is taking place in the southern hemisphere that is developing their ability to adapt and adapt to what is going on.
The issue of lost money and damage exploded at COP26 weather conference in Glasgow last month, where developing countries represent the world’s largest population contributed to the establishment of an economic strategy for it, but which eventually collapsed. A network has been set up supporting “technical assistance” in overcoming losses and damage, but rich countries like the US have been strongly opposed to putting money on the table to help countries recover from climate catastrophes.
“In the meantime, the United Nations has agreed to provide funding from rich and low-income countries to change countries, and to cope with future challenges,” said Teresa Anderson, a climate advocate. at ActionAid, he told me the time for COP26. “But if you have been devastated by the weather disaster, I have to pick up the pieces and rebuild and recover, then you are alone.”
Speaking last month at a press conference at the end of COP26, John Kerry, the US President’s Special Envoy for Climate Change, said his country remains a “responsible force.” He added: “What do we think, in the next few years, we should deal with? How much money do we need to do? What is the legitimacy?
