The loss and damage (L&D) theme needs to be explicitly included in the GST as a fourth pillar. Although L&D has been discussed since the drafting of the UNFCCC in 1991, it still needs to progress on climate negotiations and financial support adequately. Three decades later, the GST presents a unique opportunity to highlight on a collective level the gaps, needs, and challenges to averting, minimizing, and addressing L&D towards 2030. Worldwide, evidence-based decisions on L&D are critical to allocating the increasing means of implementation (finance, technology transfer, and capacity building) required in a warming future.
