It is precisely due to these particular and extremely challenging circumstances that SIDS have in recent years turned to more exorbitant measures to redress their grievances, including (but not limited to) legal remedies, and the relocation of their populations to larger, less vulnerable landmasses, often descried as ‘climate migration’ or ‘refugees’. The primary purpose of this essay is to examine and critically analyse the feasibility of SIDS achieving climate justice. The plight of SIDS has been well documented in academia, as well as the media to an extent, in recent years. Indeed, the scope and scale of this essay does not allow for a full discussion on all of the many serious and burdensome challenges they face. For this purpose, the thesis of this paper will focus on the approach by the international community towards climate displaced persons, local and global efforts designed to adapt and mitigate the impacts of climate change, as well as addressing the legal ramifications and challenges faced by those who find themselves removed from their habitual lands by necessity.
Loss and Damage Mechanism
The onset of climate change over the past two decades has led to an evolution in the international approach to address and mitigate the impacts of such. The understanding of Climate Change is not recent, the United Nations Framework Conference for Climate Change (UNFCCC) was established to reduce the amount of Greenhouse Gases that the world produced. However, it has subsequently been recognised that due to the position of SIDS, and other vulnerab...

...comprehensive risk management approaches; Strengthening dialogue, coordination, coherence and synergies among relevant stakeholders, and; Enhancing action and support, including finance, technology and capacity-building.
The exact definition of Loss and Damage is yet to be formalised, but it has been articulated by some as referring to the “negative effects of climate variability and climate change that people have not been able to cope with or adapt to”. Crucially, the mechanism addresses both “extreme events and slow onset events”, both of which feature prominently in many SIDS nations, largely due to their geographical positioning in tropical climates. Hurricanes, tsunamis’, and other extreme weather events – to which there have been several prominent and vivid examples in recent decades, have been occurring in higher frequencies and intensity in recent years.

- Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Many questions about the causes of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), also known as “crib death,” are still unresolved. The mysterious and elusive nature of SIDS creates problems, doubts, and more questions. This paper will present some of the most commonly asked questions as well as the answers that have been uncovered by scientists after years of research and study. In 1969, researchers agreed to define SIDS as “the sudden death of an infant or young child, which is unexpected by history, and in which a thorough postmortem examination fails to demonstrate an adequate cause of death” (Bergman, 1970)....

- The Continuing Mystery of SIDS Sudden infant death syndrome ( SIDS) is the greatest cause of infant deaths ranging from ages one month to one year. Most of these deaths occur before the age of six months. Normally, any unexplainable infant death is considered to be due to SIDS. Numerous attempts have been made to discover the exact cause of this syndrome. However,the only known pathology is that SIDS is due to a dysfunction or abnormality in the cardiac and/or respiratory systems. To this point, an exact and definite cause has not been named....
