EESI – Climate Change Loss and Damage
The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to join us for a briefing on what you need to know about loss and damage from climate change in the lead-up to the international climate negotiations in Egypt (COP27). The topic of loss and damage, defined as climate impacts that cannot be adapted to, is expected to be one of the most discussed issues at COP27. Impacts like land loss in Louisiana and homes falling into the ocean in North Carolina are being felt around the world. Leaders are reckoning with how to address this growing challenge, particularly in countries without the financial and technical tools needed to respond.
Panelists will discuss the tools the international community has designed so far to address loss and damage, the current status of international climate negotiations on this issue, expectations of what might happen next on the topic at COP27, and why the international conversation on loss and damage matters for U.S. policymakers.
