A special issue (Vol. 8 No. 2, 2015) of the International Journal of Global Warming is available as open access. The theme of the open issue is “Emerging perspectives on loss and damage”. There are some useful articles covering:- loss and damage in negotiations under the United Nations Framework on Climate Change and the role of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; the suitability of disaster loss databases for documenting impacts of climate change particularly those related to extreme weather and slow onset events; the complexity involved in migrating and relocating communities affected by climate change and recommend interventions for easing the resettlement process; and “problematizing” climate change loss and damage. Be warned, these are academic papers but they do contain some practical information that is useful for industrialists and different discipline practitioners.
