Not a Silver Bullet: Why the focus on insurance to address loss and damage is a distraction from real solutionsType:PublicationPublication date:Objective:

Developing countries are being increasingly hammered by the direct impacts of a growing number of climate change charged weather extremes–super-sized storms, worsening floods, and more devastating droughts–as well as the insidious, slow onset of rising sea levels. These climate events often overwhelm economies, costing poor countries, by some estimates, US$500 billion annually and forcing 26 million people into poverty each year
