Climate Impacts disproportionately and unjustly affect vulnerable populations generating losses and damages. These negative impacts directly affect human rights and place an additional burden on Global South development and are drivers for inequality. The lack of funding opportunities and the active avoidance of responsibility by major carbon emitters has left communities in the frontlines to face climate impacts with no support and alone.
Climate Impacts: Responsibility and Justice is a Special Event of the UN Climate Dialogues. The event brings advocates and experts on climate justice and loss and damage. The objective is to highlight the importance of responsibility and climate justice in the current discussion on climate change. This space is organized by AIDA and La Ruta del Clima.
