The Path Beyond Fossil Fuels - Seeking a Just and Orderly Transition

An urgent reframing of loss and damage is called for by The Climate Crisis Advisory Group (CCAG) at COP27 to ensure no further delay in just and orderly transition.

On Monday, November 7th, 2022 a leading group of international climate experts, the Climate Crisis Advisory Group (CCAG), released its latest report ‘The path beyond fossil fuels: seeking a just and orderly transition’.

It argues for a reframing of the loss and damage discussion, where loss and damage is not only addressed and compensated, but the deliberative process to achieve it allows no room for nations to delay or deflect from taking all possible immediate steps to reduce their emissions deeply and rapidly.

The Group asserts that in the current context of climate change, loss and damage has conceptual limitations which must be recognised and resolved. For instance, no consensus has been reached between nations on how such loss and damage responsibilities should be enacted, and wealthier nations are stalling as poorer nations continue to suffer the impacts.

The notion of loss and damage also fails to address the ongoing loss of species and habitat - including the loss of cities and irreversible harm to entire countries.

The program will discuss this initiative.
