Abstract

Scientists project serious increases in society’s exposure to extreme weather events as a result of climate change. Indeed, they have begun to link current disasters to climate change. As a result, international disaster law has begun to acknowledge the importance of taking account of climate change in disaster risk management. Simultaneously, climate negotiations are beginning to address disasters as a form of “loss and damage,” and more broadly under the rubric of climate change adaptation. Both fields of law can be enriched by this trend. This article discusses the growing interconnections of these two fields and future avenues for fruitful collaboration.
