The climate crisis is destroying homes, habitats, and hearts. We must act.
It's hitting the poorest people in the world the hardest – those who have done the least to contribute to the problem and yet are suffering the most.
The loss and damage caused by climate change has already left millions with no home, livelihood or income.
Why this fund is needed
It’s time that governments across the world set up a central fund to pay for the loss and damage caused by climate change:
- a fund which those who are hit hardest can easily access
- a fund which would pay for the rebuilding of homes flattened by hurricanes
- a fund which can support those who can no longer farm their land, because of rising sea levels or persistent drought
Without this, millions of people in the world’s poorest countries will continue to be left with nothing.
Those who should contribute the most to this fund are those most responsible for the climate crisis: rich countries and the fossil fuel companies.
Our message to Eamon Ryan and Liz Truss: back the fund
We’re calling on the Irish Minister, Eamon Ryan and UK Prime Minister, Liz Truss, to fully back the creation of an international loss and damage fund as a matter of urgency, and to push for other governments to back this too.
