Loss & Damage

Loss & Damage is the impact of climate change that is not avoided by mitigation, adaptation, and other measures. It has both economic and non-economic costs, and results from extreme weather events like hurricanes and floods as well as slow onset climatic processes like sea level rise. It includes permanent and irreversible losses for which an economic value can be calculated and non-economic impacts, such as the loss of culture, that cannot be quantified in monetary terms.
