For the world’s most vulnerable communities, loss and damage due to climate change is already a reality. A new report looks beyond adaptation and draws evidence of loss and damage from five case studies conducted in Bangladesh, Bhutan, the Gambia, Kenya, and Micronesia. The results will be launched at the UN Climate Change Conference in Doha/Qatar. The findings are based on nearly 1800 household interviews and 200 focus group and expert discussions.

Around 13% of global emissions come from agricultural practices themselves – in particular from methane and nitrous oxides.
