This issue brief examines the urgency to address loss and damage and its associated impacts. It highlights the different perspectives to understand loss and damage and discusses the fundamental gaps and challenges surrounding the issue.

This brief presents a case as to why a loss and damage finance facility must be established at the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27). Finance in the aftermath of an extreme climate- or weather-related event is a necessity to counteract long-lasting negative effects.

The report analyzes the characteristics of global extreme weather disasters from 2000 to 2021. During this period, annual direct economic losses from extreme disasters in Asia, America, Europe and Africa showed an increasing trend.

The impacts of climate variability, climate change, and extreme events are visible globally and in India. The Global Climate Risk Index 2021 ranks India seventh, considering the extent to which India has been affected by the impacts of weather-related loss events (storms, floods, heatwaves, etc.).

This paper supports countries in understanding the potential impact of climate-related natural hazards by assessing the exposure of people and assets to these hazards.

This report is the second report about the 2021 World Risk Poll findings and it shows how financial insecurity undermines resilience in the face of climate change-related disasters.

This brief focuses on how climate change acts as a threat multiplier, worsening the existing risks and vulnerabilities to hunger for already disadvantaged people, particularly women, agricultural workers, and small-scale farmers.

The Power Outlook Series developed by Vasudha Foundation provides an overview of the current status of India’s power sector with a focus on significant and emerging developments. The outlook series aims to develop a more informed understanding of the power sector and act as a tracking tool for stakeholders.

In this report, the authors conclude that if the rising costs of extreme weather are to be mitigated, the government of Australia should focus more on resilience and future-proofing.

This report reveals that in 2022, the majority of G20 countries were high by severe climate, and faced multimillion dollar hits as a result of storms, droughts, floods and heatwaves . It shows that 2022 has been one of the most ferocious years on record for climate impacts, leaving very few countries unscathed.
