Most of the extreme weather events and impacts of the climate crisis are hitting the most vulnerable communities and landscapes. According to article 8 of the 2015 Paris Agreement, “parties recognise the importance of averting, minimizing and addressing loss and damage associated with the adverse effects of climate change including extreme weather events and slow onset events.” But is recognition of these realities the best we can do as humanity? Without tangible solutions at COP 26, heads of states of the majority world and young activists in the Global South managed to include “loss and damage” in the final outcome of COP 27. But what is next? For this Youth Daily Show, we are sitting down with activists from the frontlines of the climate crisis to shine a light on what these issues really mean for the world today and tomorrow.
