While mitigation remains a central focus of the international climate negotiations, vulnerable states and communities are calling for greater cooperation on addressing the fallout from climate-related environmental devastation.

To discuss this, Anna is joined by H.E. Saida Muna Tasneem, Bangladesh’s High Commissioner to the UK and Ambassador to Ireland and Liberia. They discuss the international politics around climate adaptation, and the contested issue of ‘loss and damage’.
