Child-centred adaptation: realising children's rights in a changing climate
This report argues that children should be a focus of efforts to address climate change and play an active part in the decisions that shape their present and future. The report calls on governments to commit to 6 priority actions in the implementation of their climate change commitments and highlights child-centered case studies on tackling climate change from across the world.
In developing countries, climate change is projected to exacerbate the top five causes of death for children under five. Children are the least responsible for creating climate change but will bear the brunt of its impacts.
