Loss and damage is one of the most contentious issues related to climate change because of the question of responsibility for covering the costs. From super typhoons, hurricanes, flash floods and massive bushfires, countries hit by climate-related disasters have struggled to find resources to respond to the challenges of rebuilding and meeting the needs, especially of poor communities hit hard. The projected economic costs of loss and damage by 2030 is estimated to be between USD 290 and 580 billion in developing countries alone. Over 80% of people currently displaced by climate related events are women and girls (UN). Women, especially across the Global South, are hugely impacted due to the structural inequalities they face, in large part due to the prevalence of women’s unpaid care and domestic work.
