Falling through the gaps: how global failures to address the climate crisis are leading to increased losses and damages

To better understand the realities and needs of frontline communities, the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance explored flooding impacts and risks in Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Nepal. Case studies on losses and damages in these countries are summarized in this report. They build upon empirical observations, including post-event forensic analysis (e.g. the Post-Event Review Capability (PERC)), resilience assessments (e.g. the Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC)), relevant global and national impact and risk databases, and reflections of key actors and communities themselves.

The report clearly shows what and where investments are needed wrong the climate injustice that loss and damage represents. I hope that members of the Transitional Committee established at COP27 will fully assimilate the key messages of this report to make radical recommendations to the UNFCCC to finance nationally determined ways to address loss and damage. The findings here complement and have synergies with those of recent Scottish Government report on practical actions to address loss and damage –
