  • Climate change: Scotland provides 'loss and damage' funding to Malawi

    As Tropical Cyclone Freddy leaves around 100 people dead across Malawi amid a trail of destruction, a charity in Scotland is already doing its bit to try to mitigate the effects of climate change there. Malawi has been highlighted as one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to climate change. At the COP26 summit in Glasgow in 2021, an initial £2 million was pledged by Scotland in "loss and damage" funding, followed by another £5 million at last year's summit in Sharm el-Sheikh. In Perspective, we spoke to Ben Wilson from SCIAF, the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund, one of the charities helping to spend the money.

  • 'Loss and damage' from climate change: 'Non-economic losses need to be recognised'

    In many ways, last month's COP27 climate summit was yet another disappointment. Critics describe it as the moment the dream of limiting global warming to 1.5° C above pre-industrial levels officially died. But the summit did see a breakthrough agreement on "loss and damage", through a funding scheme for the nations most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Rwandan youth activist Ineza Umuhoza Grace conducts research on loss and damage in developing nations. She joined us for Perspective.
