Weathering the storm: girls and climate change


This document assesses the risks posed by climate change to children, and especially to girls, who are excluded from taking part in risk reduction policies, planning and decision-making, and sharing information and resources, which means they are less prepared for the impacts of climate change. It calls for governments to: (i) invest adaptation funds in education; and (ii) support girls to take an active role in the climate change debate.
