Loss and Damage in Latin America: community demands for justice
Oxfam, Sustentabilidad Sin Fronteras and La Ruta del Clima are hosting a dialogue on Loss and Damage during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference – SB56. This dialogue will explore the importance of centering loss and damage assessments on the agency and rights of local communities.
The climate crisis is a priority for communities and human rights defenders in Latin America. Our region is one of the most affected by climate impacts while having a limited responsibility regarding its causes. Big country emitters avoid calls for responsibility and climate reparations as people in vulnerable communities fear for their life’s and future.
There is a need to address loss and damage within a human rights framework where countries are held accountable to their common but differentiated responsibilities. Big carbon emitter irresponsibility causes human rights violations and suffering . Latin American communities demand climate reparations and to have their human dignity respected.
