This paper aims to raise awareness about Loss and Damage (L&D) and ignite conversation about how Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Loss & Damage (L&D) can be linked in order to ensure more sustainable strategies for building resilience in Pakistan.

Pakistan is among the lowest emitters of greenhouse gases in the world, but ranks among the highest in terms of vulnerability to climate change. Its high dependency on the Indus River system makes it particularly vulnerable to the increasing rate of glacial melt and erratic monsoon patterns.
