Climate-induced loss and damage has recently emerged as one of the burning agenda in international climate change negotiations. Developing countries have been complaining on the increasing consequences of climate change impacts caused by massive industrial revolution since 1880s in the developed world and hence argued for reparation. The IPCC has already warned that the impacts might double in the low-adaptive capacity countries at the global warming of 2°C compared to 1.5°C. Responding to this matter, the UNFCCC through its COP19 in 2013 felt concerned and hence initiated a mechanism for loss and damage to find compensation solutions. However, one of the challenges among developing countries in international negotiations has been the insufficient evidence on the extent of loss and damage to accompany their arguments towards climate risk financing. In response to the scenario, CAN Tanzania took an initiative to undertake this research so as to contribute in aiding evidences to such negotiations in developing countries like Tanzania.
