Our world is being rocked by an increasing number of high-impact climate disasters. Floods, droughts and heatwaves are upending communities, livelihoods, and ways of life.
In this stimulating 90 minute speaker event co-organised by ActionAid, Practical Action and the Robin Hood Tax Campaign UK, we explore the lack of global action for people affected by extreme weather, and how London can play its part in turning this around as the UK prepares to host COP26.

Very few of the original Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) submitted in 2015 included loss and damage from climate change. The countries that did include it were those that were the most vulnerable to a direct climate impact, such as small island developing states from sea level rise and African countries facing increasing drought.
As the majority of NDCs are expected to be updated by the end of the year, 2020 is an important opportunity to explore whether and how loss and damage could be integrated into the review process. WWF and Practical Action will host a discussion centered on their recent report.
