Nick Breeze interviews Dr. Saleemul Huq, Director of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), who explains why we must stay below 1.5C, and why loss and damage compensation, and litigation, are the next big agenda items at COP24.



In the negotiations, there are 4 groups: the vulnerable countries group which I speak for, the Small Island States, the Africa group and the Latin America group. These 4 groups have agreed that loss and damage is happening already. It is not something that is going to happen. It is not something we need to start worrying about in the future, it is something we have to worry about right now.
