Today, for Loss and Damage Action day, activists called on polluters to pay reparations for the harm they've caused.
"In response to climate disasters, vulnerable communities rely on adaptation measures (eg. building flood defenses such as embankments) to survive; but these efforts can only go so far," Currently's Anna Abraham wrote in August.
