Countries who’ve done the least to cause the climate crisis are affected most by its impacts.

Sea levels rising, sustained heatwaves, increasingly severe bushfires, drought, hurricanes, and species extinction.

As global warming worsens, the negative impacts of climate damages will increase in frequency and severity. Developing countries are more vulnerable to the worst impacts of climate change and are less likely to have the resources to adequately respond or adapt. Yet they have contributed the least to the climate crisis.

It’s time for polluters to pay

Taxing the 2022 profits of the five oil majors by % would generate $ 4,000,000,000for the Loss and Damage Fund.

Fossil fuel companies have caused and exacerbated the climate crisis. Taxing their enormous profits is the obvious solution to financing climate finance

Climate finance seeks to support mitigation and adaptation actions that will address climate change, providing support for countries suffering from the worst impacts of the climate crisis.
When global leaders and delegations convene throughout the year at events including the Bonn Climate Conference, the G7 Summit in Puglia, Italy, and COP29 in Baku, Azerbaijan, they must hold Big Oil accountable in climate finance discussions.
