New Save the Children report examines vulnerabilities and adaptation measures

Source(s):  New Nation, the - Ittefaq Group of Publications Limited

The New Nations comments on the recent release of Save the Children UK's report 'Feeling the Heat: Child Survival in a Changing Climate.'

The news agency states that, according to the report, the number of children involved in child labour in countries affected by climate change, similar to Bangladesh, may rise in the near future, as the change may make it more difficult for children to attend school.

'Child-centred disaster risk reduction (DRR) should be recognised as a corner stone of adaptation' states the report.
