Whether you live in Bangladesh, Brazil, or the United States, climate security is a human right. We hold a moral responsibility to repair harm and offer relief from climate damage and loss.
Yet the United States and other wealthy countries are actively blocking a viable proposal that has the united support of countries representing over 80% of the world’s population, including G77 and China.
We cannot allow this resistance to action on loss and damage. These nations deserve the right to determine how to use funds. The US is the largest historical emitter of carbon pollution and bears the most significant responsibility of any country for the climate impacts.
The global majority is asking for an international finance facility. They deserve the right to determine how to use funds that acknowledge what has been lost forever and support repairing the damages that we can.
As we head into the next United Nations annual international climate conference (COP27) in Egypt this November, loss and damage must be on the agenda. An agreement to create a UN finance facility is an essential first step.

Help us demand that the Biden administration stop blocking progress on loss and damage and work constructively to advance a pathway for a Loss and Damage Finance Facility at COP27.
With escalating climate impacts in every country, governments need to start talking and the U.S. must stop blocking—and instead help healing and repair move forward.
Responsibility starts with us.
