In this article we examine legal perspectives on recovery for harm caused by climate related loss and damage. We start by discussing the meaning of loss and damage, and its relationship to climate mitigation and adaptation. We then consider, at a conceptual level, how those harmed by loss and damage from human induced climate change may pursue remedies against those who have contributed to the harm suffered.
