Lund University for Sustainability Studies, Lund, Sweden
While the proliferation of new papers and initiatives relating to Loss and Damage (L&D) is promising, many challenges remain for the scientific and policy communities. These include how L&D from climate change should be conceptualized, how to measure and quantify existing L&D and predict future L&D, and what governance arrangements are most appropriate for different contexts. For example, which approaches to L&D from climate-related events can best account for both economic as well as non-economic impacts, where increasing evidence suggest the latter can be just as significant to individuals and communities ? How can climate science, ecological science and sustainability science perspectives be combined to advance L&D theory and practice? And how can L&D from climate events be meaningfully situated within the broader sustainable development agenda, including the SDGs, as highlighted in Article 8 of the Paris Agreement? Is there need for new research to support L&D policy, as new questions emerge that require attention?
