    Abstract Loss and damage refers to impacts of climatic stressors that cannot be or have not been avoided through mitigation, adaptation and disaster risk management (Warner & van der Geest, 2013). Between 1970 and 2012, a total of 8832 disasters, including droughts, floods, windstorms, tropical cyclones, storm surges, extreme temperatures, landslides and wildfires, have resulted in 1.94 million deaths and USD 2.4 trillion of economic losses globally (WMO, 2014). Besides the havoc caused by sudden-onset events, there are enormous losses and damages from slow-onset processes, such as sea level rise and desertification.
